Much more but I like this tidbit: one of Romney's upper-class dorm advisers at Stanford was David Harris. Yes, that David Harris--who went to jail over Vietnam and married Joan Baez. He's quoted in the story re: young Mitt. Also they present five photos of the following:
As Mr. Romney’s freshman year waned, Mr. Harris won a landslide victory as student body president. Anti-draft demonstrators soon took over the Stanford president’s office.
Mr. Romney demonstrated as well — outside, in khakis and a sport jacket, picketing the occupiers with a sign that read “Speak out, don’t sit in.”Of course, many will note that Bill Clinton also remained out of harm's way. At least one key difference: Bubba opposed the war, so he didn't display the hypocrisy of being a hawk and refusing to fight. Also: I'm not aware that he ever said, 40 years later, that he "longed" to have fought there.
