@raprap,
Who will be Romney's running mate?

It's obvious: His previous opinions that are not running any more!

No comment about Dole as a possibility?

I bet he cleans up well though. And he can say things like, "Yippee kay ah", while holding a gun. That'll go over great.

Governor Bob Jindal of Louisiana? Unlike Romney, he can mobilize the conservative Republican base and win elections in the South. Also, he is young enough to be a credible successor, should Romney win and be a successful president.

Rubio was recently on the local news here saying he’s not interested, but you know how that goes.

@Thomas,
I think Conservatives like Jindal a lot -- especially after that fiery rhetoric he espoused at the recent NRO shindig (kind of made up for his lackluster 2009 SOTU rebuttal). He, along with Portman, Ryan, and McDonnell are probably on the short list.

If Romney wanted a trifecta of gimmicky advantage, though, he could also think about Governor Martinez (R-NM).

This choice of Veep is, IMO, the most interesting part of the race so far. Wonder when he'll make an announcement?

@EqualityFLSTPete,
He made some interesting comments when saying it, too. I think even he realizes he's too green to fill the VP slot -- at least in this election.

Bachman. I watched her on a question answer show on television last night and she gave the same exact conservative speech too the 4 questions she was asked. She never answered any of the questions but she has the speech down pat and wouldent stick her foot in her mouth. Just what Romney needs consistancy.

@Ragman,
actually I thought it was intriguing. Then again I don't know all that much about these sort of things. I seem to remember people liking her a lot more than Bob. And she'd help with the female vote

@thack45,
Seriously, I'm not interested in voting for her OR Romney.

But...that being said...take a look at her qualifications. She is very smart, had prestigious degrees (graduate of Duke University and Harvard Law School), has held leadership positions as Secretary of Transportation as well as Sec. of Labor, head of the Red Cross, served a 6-yr stint as NC Senator (first feamle to do so in NC) and has more qualifications than 90% of the field of potential nominees. IMHO, it would make it a far more interesting race with her as a Veep candidate.

Oh yeah, she was the former chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee from 2007-2009. Of course that might not be viewed as a positive attribute, too.

Makes you wonder why Romney is the nominee for Pres and not her?

I would have suggested Rick Perry, had he not bombed out egregiously early on.

@edgarblythe,
I can't see Romney and Perry as being compatible in any sense whatever.

@Lustig Andrei,
So Lyndon Johnson and John Kennedy were compatible?

The differences were not nearly as great as in a Romney/Perry hookup.

I don't know. Kennedy and Johnson hated each other's guts.

True, but I don't think that was a result of doctrinal, i.e. political philosophy, differences. There was an incompatibility of personalities, as in some marriages (Smile), that's all. Romney and Perry are so far apart in their intellectual spheres, it'd be a disaster to pair them, imo.

I would like John McCain, regardless if Romney wins. The benefit, in my opinion, is certain nations will understand that the USA has not become Wimpland.
