It's not too late for Romney. As the last few weeks have proved, voters tune in late. That means that Romney can still change his image. He needs to muss his hair, don a flannel shirt and a pair of jeans, grab a photographer and go dig a hole somewhere. Americans don't appreciate candidates who won't get their hands dirty -- literally. Teddy Roosevelt once advised William Howard Taft, "Photographs on horseback, yes; tennis, no. And golf is fatal." Romney looks as though he'd be far more comfortable playing tennis or golf at a yacht club than riding a horse. And that hurts him.

John McCain, the only cowboy left in the Republican field, is the beneficiary. Unless Romney brings out his rustic -- and personable -- side now, McCain will be the only Republican left standing, period.
