  •  I say it will be Portman....an Evangelical won't (0+ / 0-)

    run with Romney...they don' like him....and Rubio has his own investment problems....Rule out Santorum and Rubio..Christie is just too unlikeable...Susanna Martinez would be a smart pick, but she's another woman with no name recognition...also doesn't help in Virginia and the Midwest.....Nikki Haley...Too dumb...Thune doesn't get Romney any votes....My instinct is that Bob McDonnell would be too evangelical for Romney....nevertheless...he could help in Virginia, but hurts in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin...Brian Sandoval...No help in the Midwest...Daniels' SOTU response was too much like Obama's SOTU...The ticket should have been Jeb Bush/Daniels...Daniels is out...Portman gives Romney a chance in Ohio and Indiana....Doesn't help in him in Virgina or Florida...

    Susanna Martinez (Governor, New Mexico)
    Chris Christie (Governor, New Jersey)
    Rob Portman (Senator, Ohio)
    John Thune (Senator, South Dakota)
    Bob McDonnell (Governor, Virginia)
    Nikki Haley (Governor, South Carolina)
    Brian Sandoval (Governor, Nevada)
    Mitch Daniels (Governor, Indiana)

    •  actually, Huckabee would be the best all-round (0+ / 0-)

      pick....But there is still NOT ONE MINUTE of foriegn policy experience between the two.....

      and may I remind you....Romney is NOT a very popular Republican...!!!!
