At least we have Options.
Romney could pick the most conservative running mate in the world. he could pick Jesus.
I fell for it last time. This time, no flipping way.
When will the GPO start kicking out the democrats in our party?
As for the rest of the field. If any of them pick him or another known conservative. I’m ok with that.
If we actually believe ANY VP pick is going to bring about a landslide, we`re deluded. And how a VP will `demolish` the head of the other ticket, I`m not sure. Didn`t happen last time, the time before...or ever.
Depends on who Obama chooses after Biden has his unfortunate stroke, car crash or incurable cancer (whichever polls best with the focus groups).
McDonnell would be a terrific choice! Especially if VA is looking ‘wobbly’. He wouldn’t be your typical fire breathing, red meat slinging bomb thrower that the VP role typically plays. He’d be more of a serious problem solver type. He has certainly been a wonderful governor. Really, HE should be the one running for president. Since VA governors are limited to serving a single term in office, this would also make him a good fit.
I’m still ashamed of my VA helping elect this joke we call a president in the first place. McDonnell would bring assurance that wouldn’t happen this time around.
as my posts on Freep will show i wanted the guy to run for POTUS- the hell with VP...
and can you imagine if it came down to Romney/McDonnell? the GOP would be wanting the ticket in the other direction, kinda like when we wanted a Palin/McCain ticket...if it’s McDonnell,he will get most of the attention. but I still like Thune,Ryan and Daniels too.
So who is Bob McDonnell?
This is like all the folks in the last cycle clamoring for Duncan Hunter. Great guy, but 95% of the electorate would ask, “Who?”
Landslide? Not a realistic expectation.
People don’t vote for vice presidents unless the candidate at the top of the ticket is 80 years old.
