Mitt Romney, a Doer?

I am slightly more sympathetic to Mitt Romney after reading this WSJ article:
At a recent "Ask Mitt Anything" night here, a nine-year-old girl asked the Republican candidate what is the first thing he will do as president. "I will build the right team," Mr. Romney replied matter-of-factly. "I tend to be a person driven by data and analysis, not just what's political."

The girl looked at him blankly.

The response was vintage Romney -- the 60-year-old ├╝ber-management consultant who achieved front-runner status by planning and plotting details of his presidential bid, from PowerPoint presentations to performance benchmarks. Now, as he tries to close the biggest sale of his life, Mr. Romney's carefully-crafted "operating plan" is under siege.
