Mitt Romney: great at choosing haircuts, not so great at human interaction.

BuzzFeed uncovered a 1994 interview between then-Senate hopeful Romney and teen reporter Ken Cole. Romney was vying for Ted Kennedy's seat.

It's riddled with such conversational gems as the following.

"How do you like this music behind us right now, huh?" Cole asked.

"I like music of almost any kind, including this," replied Romney.

The awkward exchange occurred at a campaign stop in Medfield, Massachusetts. Despite Romney's obvious charm, he lost the election by a margin of 58% to 41%.
