GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney seems to have enjoyed the dust-up the other day between Democratic frontrunners Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

"It's great, isn't it?" Romney said to peals of laughter from crowd of employees at a solar-related equipment plant on the newly declared candidate's first visit to the leadoff presidential primary state. "I love to see it when it happens on the other side." The former Massachusetts governor described his leading Republican rivals, Sen. John McCain of Arizona and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, as "friends" and "national heroes," before adding, "I respect them. I'm sure we'll disagree on issues from time to time, but I doubt you'll see the rancor that apparently may exist elsewhere." -Romney In New Hampshire as quoted by AP.

Somehow, as the delegate counts start to mount 11 months from now (if Romney makes it that far) you get the feeling those comments just may come back to haunt the former Massachusetts governor.
