My VP choices:


McDonnell-confederate problem
Rubio - untested, little national experience.
Huck - too much baggage, mixed record.

I realize my choices might not be strategic, but I think it's important to consider 2020.

Mitt's shortlist will look like this:

Huckabee - unity ticket
Jindal - turnaround ticket
Rubio - "Leading man" ticket
McDonnell - experience ticket (business/military)
Perry - jobs ticket

Jim DeMint 26th?

I don't think so.
He and Romney are tight. There is a calculating reason that he is appearing reluctant to endorse Romney at this point.

When he does, it will be BIG!

Rubio would be OK, but I like DeMint better.

I agree with you zeke.

Romney / DeMint in 2012!

My top 3 choices, in no particular order, are Rubio, Jindal and DeMint.

What they all have in common - from the south, will bring the Republican party together.

The only reason Rubio is not my stand alone #1 choice is that by the time he would take office as VP he would have just finished his 2nd year in a six year term as senator. So far he has impressed me every time I've heard him open his mouth.
