Political Path 

Following in his father's political footsteps, Romney served as governor of Massachusetts from 2003 until 2007. Perhaps his crowning achievement, Romney enacted a near-universal health care law for the state of Massachusetts, though he has since distanced himself from the legislation in light of comparisons to President Obama's Affordable Care Act. (Photo: Matthew Cavanaugh/Getty Images)
