In the presidential arena, recent events have reminded even supporters of President Obama and presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney that tactics often trump courage. On gay marriage, Obama remains stuck in an amorphous limbo. Does he or does he not support gay marriage? Vice President Joe Biden does. Education Secretary, long-time Obama friend and basketball mate Arne Duncan does. Obama? Who knows. Courage? Hardly. Tactics? Yes. More on that in a moment.
Does Romney believe Obama should be "tried for treason" as a questioner and apparent supporter said Monday in Ohio? No one at the event knows because Romney said nothing in the face of this pretty aggressive charge. Courageous? Nope. Tactical. Through and through.
