For Mitt Romney, the road to the White House apparently leads through a massive 16-inch pancake. Campaigning at Charlie Parker's Diner in Springfield, Ill., on Monday, Romney marveled at the size of the flapjacks, likening them to his victory in Puerto Rico's GOP primary over the weekend.

"These pancakes are something else, I'll tell ya," Romney declared, per Emily Friedman of ABC News. "These pancakes are about as large as my win in Puerto Rico last night, I must admit. The margin is just about as good."
