The pregame warm-up is over.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's urgent task now:
Learn the lessons of a primary season peppered with tactical and communications errors that cost time and money while reinforcing doubts about him.

Even his allies say that's a must, given that Romney now faces Democratic President Barack Obama's well-oiled machine, battle-tested and prepared to face the eventual Republican nominee.

Romney gave his primary rivals openings with a series of verbal
