The new

30 Mar

political game is trying to guess who Romney will choose as his VP. Rubio is a good choice. But I’m wondering if, to gin up excitement, it has to by Ryan or Rubio. I’m not at all sure that a no-name is the way to go, here. Maybe if the credentials were amazingly good, but I would rather that Romney doesn’t have to introduce us to his pick.

On the other hand, you don’t want a national figure who has his or her reputation set in stone, particularly if it is negative. It will be interesting. Right now I’m hoping for Rubio, but it’s not like I’m an insider to the pros and cons of those decisions.

    When are you coming out with your veep prediction, Gregor? You were the only person I know who even had Palin on the radar list four years ago.

      If I were to guess, I’d guess Rubio, but perhaps Paul Ryan. I am much more in the dark this time.
