Mitt Romney was deep into the final stretch of his bid for the presidency just one month ago, looking at internal poll numbers that his staff said proved the White House was firmly within his grasp. By now, Romney was supposed to be busy with his transition to succeed President Barack Obama in the Oval Office and planning his lavish January inauguration.
Instead, Romney spent his week in perhaps the most unremarkable way possible: He went to Costco and bought a giant box of Bisquick. But the voracious coverage of the purchase is the latest evidence of a transition Romney probably didn't expect: from being a man on the brink of the presidency to a sudden star on the celebrity tabloid circuit.
