I know the question has been asked before, but not today, and not be me.
Headline this am: "Indiana Gov. Daniels: Not me for vice president"
So, maybe he's off the list.
But who will be the man/woman in the end?
Your thoughts, please.
The serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The courage to change the things I can, And the wisdom to know the difference.

Beltway types keep saying Rob Portman. Snooze......
“Close tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share,” Reagan vowed.

Portman may be a wise political choice, although a very very boring one. Last I saw, Obama was ahead in Ohio and Portman may be what Romney needs to carry the state.
As you probably know, in the modern times, the Republicans who have won the presidential election have won Ohio.
Perhaps Romney will have his Sarah Palin momment and ask Ted Nugent to join him.
On a more serious note, I believe it will be Marco Rubio. However, I do not believe that will help Romney much with the Hispanic vote outside of Florida. It may help him some with conservatives and with Florida.
True. Not sure whether Portman seals it, though. If Obama gets Nevada, New Mexico and Colorado plus one of Virginia and North Carolina, then the GOP can take Ohio and Florida and still lose.
I don't think Portman, or Ohio even, cinches it for Romney. As unexciting of a pick that Portman may be, at least it makes strategical sense.
True. McDonnell helps in Virginia too. Gov Martinez (R-NM) helps with women, hispanics, and is in a swing state.
Romney won't get any Black votes if he puts Jemimah Rice in as his running mate. Black People know better.
Mexicans know that Martinez and Rubio are Tio Tacos. Romney ought to just pick another white boy.
Ted nuggent obviously

What about women?
He ought to pick Larry Elder, Mark Levin, John Batchelor or Andrew Wilkow. However, if he did, there would be no vice presidential debate. Joe Biden would run and hide at the thought of facing any of them.
Do you mean Jeremiah Wright? In the unlikely event that Romney is looking to a cleric from Christianity's progressive wing, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have more name recognition.
I agree with Larry elders ideas. But much of America does not
portman, rubio, christie, and paul ryan are the short list according to this article
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In picking a vice presidential running mate, Republican Mitt Romney wants to avoid the Sarah Palin syndrome.Then-Republican nominee John McCain shook up the 2008 race with his dramatic
He keeps denying that he is interested, but I am now of the opinion that it will be Rubio.
Rubio isn't Mexican
i doubt rubio. can't have two mormons on the ticket, can they?
I think he meant Jerry Rice.
Peyton/Eli Manning, Brett Favre or Marco Rubio are the 3 that my research team have recently discovered would be the best choices for VP in 2012.
Rush Limbaugh Jenifer Lopez and Donovan McNabb would each be considered poor choices for VP we have discovered, but that can all change in a few months.
Feelings get hurt, best not to have any!
??? Rubio isn't Mormon, he's Catholic. I'm not a big fan of the guy, but what's with all the inaccuracies in this thread about him? Haha
I was just joking about morman rubio. But he used to be a mormon. I wonder why he switched ?
From glancing at his Wikipedia page and a quick Google search, it seems like his family, for whatever reason attended a Mormon church for three years when they lived in Vegas, from the time Rubio was 8 to 11. He received his first communion at 13. I don't know the story on why the family went back and forth, but I think we can say it's unlikely he converted back to make it easier to become a politician decades later (I'm not saying that's what you're implying, I'm just saying that because people like Bobby Jindal and Nikki Haley, for example, have been accused of converting to Christianity just to get elected)
I would like to think that it wouldn't matter.
