Any good politician knows the importance of finding common ground with a local audience. It's Speechmaking 101, whether accomplished through strategic praise for sports teams, cultural treasures or local figures. Sometimes it's best simply to acknowledge one's differences rather than try to adopt the local vernacular. Romney did a little of both as he campaigned in the Southern primaries. (AP Photo/Rogelio V.
