    Mitt Romney threw a great political bash yesterday, in Stratham, New Hampshire, to "officially" launch his 2012 Presidential campaign. He and his team do this stuff right. They held it on a lovely farm owned by Republican donors, located conveniently for both local and DC media to get to, got two or three hundred people to show, served chili, and put Romney up in ready-for-video staging with a speech loaded with bite-sized remarks.

    I attended Mitt Romney's fine campaign-launch event today, and am still putting together a write-up about it, but I want to jump in and scream yet again that any discussion you see or hear about Mitt Romney's chances to win the GOP nomination -- no matter how intelligent and insightful that discussion may be -- that doesn't include the word "abortion" is doomed analysis.

    One if by land, two if by sea, and Tweet if by I-84 to the Mass. Pike. Yes, amid horrible storms Sarah Palin and her "One Nation" family bus tour have entered the great Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

    Nico Hines, a New York Times reporter sent to follow this leg of Palinpalooza, last Tweeted that he and the bus were on I-90 passing through Worcester.

    29% Mitt Romney

    19% Tim Pawlenty

    17% Jon Huntsman

    7% Sarah Palin

    6% Michele Bachmann

    "Boston Tom" asks:

    Have we heard the last of the announced Democrats to challenge Scott Brown? If not, who is either (a) strongly considering a run or (b) definitely in for a run against Brown.

    & "CMassPolitics" asks:

    When Patty Murray and the DSCC say that they will have a front-line Senate candidate in a few weeks, do they mean Elizabeth Warren, one of the congressmen, someone else? It seems to me that Frank, Neal, Olver and Menino all publicly talking down the current candidates is an effort to keep the decks clear until Capuano makes a decision.

    "Elias Nugator" asks:

    Given the fact that the Commonwealth is about to lose a seat in Congress, are there any members of our delegation willing to "do the right thing" and decline to run in 2012 to prevent a ruinous intra-party fight? Or are they all gonna go down fighting no matter what?

    There appear to be none willing to walk away.

    "James" starts off Ask Me Anything Day via email:

    What happened to the much celebrated "Worcester Power" of 2010? Will it show up anywhere in 2012? Can we get a senate candidate from outside 128?

    Well, it was much celebrated by me, anyway -- but maybe I was just wrong. As you suggest, the US Senate candidates and potential candidates all seem to come not only from east of 128, but within a stone's throw of Brighton.
