Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and vice-presidential candidate U.S. Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) (R) talk on their campaign bus after a rally in Dayton, Ohio September 25, 2012 during a two-day bus tour of
Will the Dynamic Duo do it again?
Hey, Paul Ryan finally said something we can agree with, albeit not for the same reasons:
U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan said Thursday he would love to see Mitt Romney run again for president and teased the GOP's former nominee at one point that the "third time's the charm." [...] Ryan told reporters after the question-and-answer session with Romney that he would "love to see Mitt Romney run for president again."
Sadly, Ryan wasn't very serious. and even if he were, Mitt says he's not running in 2016, so the closest we'll get to a Romney repeat is if Ryan himself decides to run. According to the AP, Ryan says the main issue keeping him from running is that...
...he's not sure he's ready to spend more time away from Janesville, the small Wisconsin town where he grew up and where he and his wife, Janna, have raised their three children.
Yeah, if he doesn't run it'll be because he wants to spend more time in Janesville. Which totally explains why Ryan will take over the House Ways and Means Committee chairmanship if he decides not to run.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
