Sometimes Speed beats Mass (Money) in politics

A take away from Byron York for UUs concerned about money in politics. Sometimes all that money gives you big organization to trip over. Something the Obama folks on Michigan Ave ought to be thinking about today.
Gingrich's campaign was also faster and more nimble than the Romney battleship. "There is a very strong contrast between the two campaign organizations," said Gingrich adviser (and former George W. Bush administration official) Kevin Kellems. "In military terms, it's speed versus mass. Newt Gingrich's operation, and Newt Gingrich as a man, has a great deal of speed -- intellectual speed, decisiveness. The Romney campaign is much more about money and size, having hired half of Washington D.C. And sometimes, speed beats mass."
