Jon Stewart: Romney is ‘everybody’s first choice for second place’
In these two clips from last night’s ‘Daily Show’, host Jon Stewart has a long look at the presumptive GOP front runner, Mitt Romney. Throughout these early months of the Republican primary, as Stewart points out, Romney has exhibited two steady traits; he’s constantly coming in second to other candidates and that he is apparently incapable of taking a firm stand on any issue of significance to the Republican base.

In the second clip, Jon discussees the bleakness of the rest of the field, between Herman Cain, who’s lucky to make it safely from one end of a sentence to the other, and Rick Perry, who, as Stewart says, always looks as if he’s posing for the photo on a box of ‘Just for Men’ hair color. Romney’s best strategy, he suggests, might be to just sit back and let the others flame out all on their own.
