A Place for All Conservatives to Speak Their Mind.
I can live with Paul Ryan.
Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell is the best choice for VP, IMHO, for the following reasons:- historically, former governors are far better campaigners & presidents than former legislators are - at 57 years of age, he's neither too young or too old to succeed Romney in the Oval Office- born in Pennsylvania, raised in Virginia, he will strongly appeal to voters in 2 key battleground states - as a practicing Roman Catholic, he balances the GOP ticket on the religion front- as a former Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army, with a daughter who was a platoon leader in Iraq, he brings invaluable military credentials to the GOP ticket- serving 4 years as VA Attorney General, serving 14 years in the VA legislature, and working a decade or so in the private sector gives him the depth & diversity of experience that Sarah Palin could only dream of - he won the VA governorship in 2009 with nearly 60% of the vote, including strong Tea Party support, and has maintained that level of popularity throughout his term - in the mode of Ronald Reagan & Bill Clinton, he is extremely articulate, telegenic and personable - last but not least, his squeaky clean personal life, combined with that of Romney, will surely frustrate the living daylights out of Team Obama's attack machine - a.k.a. "the mainstream media" I have a sneaky suspicion that Romney has already figured all this out, and is just waiting for the appropriate time to announce that Bob McDonnell will be his running mate
