He may not drink or cheat, and he lacks the fictional ad-maker’s charisma, but Democrats, despite the potential perils of such a strategy, remain determined to paint Romney as a throwback to the “Mad Men” era — a hopelessly retro figure who, on policy and in his personal life, is living in the past.
That’s right, instead of (Politico) comparing Mitt Romney to an archaic, sluggish, out-of-touch old man, they compare him to a young, handsome, sex symbol whose main traits are that he’s smooth and cool.
