Mitt Romney and Stuart Stevens

The laid-back Southerner Stuart Stevens is credited with substituting blue jeans and open collars for Romney’s corporate-look suits, but Stevens’s CV is cut from establishment cloth: After working for Bob Dole in 1996 and George W. Bush in 2000, he most recently served New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Whatever Romney’s fate, we may get a good read out of a Stevens effort: After Bush won, Stevens penned an insightful and wise-cracking chronicle of the campaign titled “The Big Enchilada.”
