Now that the GOP presidential primaries effectively are over, it's on to Tampa for Mitt Romney and the Republicans. The only question up for grabs now is, who will the presumptive nominee select as his running mate? My pick is Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, but more about that later.
Geography and ideology have played important, but not always critical, roles in naming vice presidential running mates. It didn't matter much to George W. Bush that his pick, former Defense Secretary Dick Cheney, was from Wyoming. Ditto for Barack Obama. He chose the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee chair Joe Biden of Delaware. What Bush and Obama each needed most was a Washington insider on the ticket. I'm sure going rogue, as former GOP running mate Sarah Palin is fond of saying, never crossed their minds

Rumor of the Day!
We have “No Really I Am A Conservative + The Base Will Vote for Me in Nov” Romney trying to pander to the moderate middle voters? I thought those were his base.
Picking Grahamesty makes absolutely no sense.
OMG!! Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse!!
Heather Graham or Homo Graham?
Might be.....I think Lindsey is scared of 2014 and trying to get people to start a whisper campaign to get him a job in a Romney admin. Because he is TOAST in 2014 as far as alot of SC is concerned......
Mitt Romney will pick a famous female politician from Alaska...
It would be like going to a NASCAR event and setting up a booth serving white bread and cucumber with mayonnaise finger sandwiches on doilies
That ticket might actually make me vote for Obama
You’re probably right about Martinez, but if Romney places the economy as issue #1, he could very well select Ryan. Ryan is not a power hungry ‘politician’. He’d be perfectly happy with a VP slot and not GAFFE PRONE like Biden that’s for sure!

Or being a Marxist America hating resident of the White House that wants people to drive dinky little electric cars and opening your democrat convention in the Charlotte Motor speedway.....LOL!
"Romney-Graham" ... has a real ring to it. /s
He needs help carrying the South, don't ya know! LOL.
When shall we commence praying for this disaster?
Is the author of this piece a Democrat?
(Been "busy" for the last 80 min or so...)
Is this guy gay? Laguna Beach is an old time “artist colony” that has become extremely gay friendly.
This is a joke right?
Mitt needs to pick Hillary. Obama would be doomed & Hillary gets some revenge for 2008. And, she may be more conservative than Mitt.
Relax folks. The author is a Democrat. There’s no reason to think that Graham is even being considered.
