Politico's Mike Allen on Mitt Romney: 'He's Even Stiff When He Eats'

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney eats pizza just let a regular guy. Well, at least a regular guy who pulls all the cheese off his slice first. That's one of the insights in a new e-book getting all the buzz among politicos today, The Right Fights Back, by POLITICO's chief White House correspondent Mike Allen and journalist Evan Thomas.

In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Allen shares some of his stories from the Republican campaign trail, including Romney's love for KFC (though, again, Allen says Romney peels the skin off first).

The book's available online today.
