Reports indicate that Clint Eastwood is in Tampa to be the mystery speaker at the Republican convention. OK, that makes my day, but I am not exactly the undecided voter that Team Romney needs to win over.
I am not sure how Clint's Q score has held up or which demographic groups respond to him, but I will offer two guesses:
1) he doesn't rock the youth vote;
2) he provides useful covering fire for media/Hollywood types to come out for Romney, or at least, pipe down about Barack. Redirecting a bit of that Hollywood money and hype should be useful.
