You have to love this video, now posted at Politico, which shows Mitt Romney making the rounds of a diner in New Hampshire. He sees two older gentlemen and sits down to join them, noticing that one has a cap that identified himself as a Vietnam Veteran. But, after some banter about their respective ages, the diner asks Romney about gay marriage and the always unflappable Romney begins to squirm: This is not turning out how he expected it to turn out. The older Vietnam Vet is having breakfast with his husband. To his credit, Romney respectfully disagreed with the man, he did not insult him, nor get peevish. But, he sure looks like he wants to run out the door, chastise his advance people, and then crawl out of his own skin.
