Excellent, he was a speaker at the 2012 TX GOP Convention.
But it is going to take an act of courage on Romney's part to run on a ticket with two white guys. Particularly a guy who would outshine him.
A pity Ryan isn’t the guy vetting VP possibilities. A lot of people on the GOP side who should have run didn’t.
Mitch Daniels is on the short list. But he’s not being considered for VP. ;^)
It is usually a sign of weakness of a campaign if they can not get a current or ex statewide office holder or a cabinet level type to take the VEEP slot. The only two House members I can remember in my lifetime were Goldwater in 1964 picking Congressman William E. Miller of upstate NY and Mondale in 1984 picking Congressman Geraldine Ferraro. As you know, those two slates with Congressmen VEEPs lost in two of the biggest blow outs in history.
So I would worry, if Romney picked Ryan. I think picking another governor would be a better way to go. I could also live with a Senator.
Wisconsin ping: This is the 2nd time, but Ryan is being vetted for VP by Romney
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
