Reader comment on item: Romney's Remarkable Speech in Jerusalem

He has spent a career reigning in his emotions and appearing calm and wooden in his business dealings. It is a difficult thing to suddenly become animated and charismatic on queue. The greater shame is that the Americans have this quality as a requisite for being electable.
