Less than a week ago John McCain was all broken up because Barack Obama had not selected the runner-up in the primary as his VP.
"She won millions of votes - but isn't on his ticket. Why? For speaking the truth, on his plans."
It's a pretty darned strange argument to make, isn't it? The runner-up in primaries has never had a claim on the vice presidency. Neither party's runners-up got on the tickets in 2000, or 1996, or 1992, or 1988, or 1984.
"I simply don’t think that the people of Florida are gonna say the nominee of our party ought to be a person who on more than one occasion has expressed lack of understanding of our economy at a time when the economy is the number one issue that people are talking about here in the state of Florida," Romney said.
"I know that there are some people who think, as Sen. McCain did, he said, you know, some jobs are leaving Michigan and they're not coming back. I disagree."
“Some politicians, as I said, are more interested in insults than issues,” Mr. Romney said.
Yes, I think that might well be the reason McCain ignored Romney's millions of voters. No doubt some enterprising reporter will ask McCain why he passed over the runner-up.
