Many of my liberal friends have groused about this situation. They want to go back to talking about dull, numerical, substantive issues like the wealth gap or the Romney tax cut. They're wrong. This symbol is a winner for Democrats, both in particular and in general.
Mitt Romney was charismatic at the first presidential debate. But he wasn't honest. Mitt Romney needs to spend a few good hours with Mister Rogers, whose humility, plain spoken honesty, wisdom, and integrity could teach him some valuable lessons.
