Mitt Romney’s highlights, courtesy of First Read:
Only six years ago, he supported abortion rights; in 1994, he sent a letter saying he’d be a stronger advocate for gay rights than Ted Kennedy; according to a 2006 article, he supported a path to citizenship for law-abiding illegal immigrants; he has said that his Massachusetts health-care law should be a model for other states; and he said back in June that humans have contributed to the world getting warmer — and that it’s important to reduce emissions to combat that. All of those positions are anathema to conservatives.
*Supported abortion rights
*Self-proclaimed stronger advocate for gay rights than Ted Kennedy

And he’s going to be the GOP nominee?
