For Romney, Words of Wisdom on Winning Michigan

We have good news and bad news for you, Mitt Romney.

The bad news: You're not going to win the auto bailout argument. The good news: Despite your alarming indifference to that reality, you're better positioned than many pundits realize to steal Michigan's coveted 16 electoral votes away from President Obama this November.

It won't be easy. As a matter of fact, you'll probably have to run a near-perfect campaign if you hope to paint your home state red for the first time in a presidential election since 1988. But it's possible, considering your connections to the state, your organization on the ground and your moderate profile. Yes, it's possible, but only on one condition: Stop talking about the damn auto bailout.
