This is turning out to be a pretty busy day for Mitt Romney, who racked up two meaty endorsements in Iowa — from the Des Moines Register (which backed John McCain in 2008) and former GOP presidential nominee Bob Dole — and also appeared for the first time in two years on a Sunday television talk show, sitting for a far-reaching (and well-received) interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace.
