Mitt Romney has landed another prominent perch from which to stay in the political conversation -- and enhance his political prospects.
The former Massachusetts governor will be among those writing a new column in the Washington Times, well read by the party's mover's and shakers.
Editor & Publisher reports that the newspaper says that the "Reinventing Conservatism" columns will "showcase a revolving series of essays by some of today's biggest thinkers in the conservative movement."
The first column, published today, is from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Romney ran for the Republican presidential nomination last year and subsequently created a political action committee to support GOP candidates. He is a frequent talking head on the cable TV news shows, most recently critiquing President Obama's economic stimulus plan. And he is in the early scuttlebutt about the 2012 presidential race.
