Check Theodore H. White describing Gov. George Romney -- Mitt Romney’s father — in his classic ‘The Making of the President 1968’:

“Above all, he looked like a President. Handsome, silver-haired, robust, masculine, smiling or stern, he seemed cast for the part by Hollywood’s Central Casting. Correspondents who liked him called him ‘Mr. Straight Arrow;’ those whose flesh crawled at his pieties called him ‘Mr. Square,’ or worse... He would make a forthright statement one day, then, like a man making up his mind in public, contradict it or modify it on another.”
