Two men trapped in one body
I'd like to tell you a story. It's about two men, trapped in one body.
One man: a Republican politician whose positions on the issues made him palatable even to Massachusetts voters. The other: a Tea Party Republican taking one extreme position after another on the economy, immigration, foreign policy, and more.
The only thing they agree on? They both want to be president, and there's not much they wouldn't do or say to get there.
You've probably guessed it -- the body they're fighting over is Mitt Romney's.
And if you want to watch the struggle in full detail, we've put a video together on a new site to chronicle it.

A lot of undecided voters out there are just starting to ask themselves: Who is this guy? Where does he really stand?
They're not the only ones trying to figure that out.
Even Conan O'Brien's noticed, saying "Experts are predicting kind of a tough fight between Romney and his biggest ideological opponent: Mitt Romney from four years ago. Those guys don't agree on anything."
There might be something behind that. The Mitt who was governor of Massachusetts had to appeal to a pretty progressive crowd to get elected, and the Mitt who's running for president needs the Republican base to clinch the GOP nomination.
All we know is Mitt wants to get to the White House. And you know what that means: The battle of Mitt v. Mitt rumbles on.
The results so far have already been pretty frightening, so that's why we need your help spreading the word on every flip-flop, backtrack, and refusal to take a clear stance.
Americans deserve to know what they'd get from a President Romney.
