Not looking good for his veep chances...

WOLF BLITZER: Can you cite one legislative accomplishment that Senator McCain produced during those 26 years in Washington in order to achieve energy independence?

GOVERNOR ROMNEY: Well, I'm not a historian that goes through all of the pieces of legislation John McCain has worked on.

No one asked Romney to take a look at McCain's late-18th century accomplishments. Those are legitimately a historical question. It was his more recent actions that were the subject of Blitzer's query. But in any case, Romney's response, translated into English, was essentially "I didn't get that talking point today."

Bottom line, the answer to Blitzer's question about McCain's accomplishments toward energy indepdence is "There aren't any."
