That's why it was particularly brilliant of Gawker's John Cook and team to ask the following question of a number of Democratic operatives and luminaries and plain old delegates as they walked around the convention center in Charlotte: "Would you trust Mitt Romney with a kill list?" Indeed. Would we trust him with the extrajudicial killing of citizens in which our current president has engaged?
