The ultimate Romney resume-builder

As ABC's The Note points out today, the big Massachusetts healthcare compromise is very, very good news for our governor and his presidential aspirations. Mark Halperin & Co. put it this way:

The Massachusetts Miracle:
This New York Times graph on the Massachusetts health care bill can be cut and pasted into Gov. Romney's next prospecting spiel in Manhattan and Florida living rooms: "The bill does what health experts say no other state has been able to do: provide a mechanism for all of its citizens to obtain health insurance. It accomplishes that in a way that experts say combines methods and proposals from across the political spectrum, apportioning the cost among businesses, individuals and the government." LINK

The recently-passed Massachusetts health care bill makes it above-the-fold on the front page of the Washington Post. LINK

"'We insist that everybody who drives a car has insurance,' Romney said in an interview. 'And cars are a lot less expensive than people.'"

If this thing is embraced by Howard Dean and Newt Gingrich, say, what does that mean for Romney's future?

Forget that fighting-gay-marriage stuff. This is going to be a political gold mine for Mitt.
