Das Bain Capital

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- My final pre-primary story is about Newt Gingrich and his allies launching a basically left-wing attack on Mitt Romney's career as a venture capitalist. Read it, and then read Nick Confessore on how Sheldon Adelson is making the attack possible.

To review: A candidate who made a great deal of money consulting for Freddie Mac, and a casino owner who makes infinitely more money from the schlubs who play craps at the Venetian, are attacking Mitt Romney as a capitalist loaded with ill-gotten money.
