Romney Veepstakes Buzz

Posted by Ryan on July 16, 2008

Although Mitt Romney is refusing to speak about whether or not current talks with McCain’s camp are taking place or that background info has changed hands, his stock in the Republican Veepstakes is rising as the press needs a new political face to obsess over nowadays.  We all know how the press influences McCain, so their buzz may have an actual affect on McCain’s eventual Veep choice.  Romney was the most experienced candidate on either side of the primaries in regards to his knowledge of the private sector and the economy, which has become his greatest asset in the Veepstakes.

Now that the economy is the most important issue in this election, Romney’s a logical selection for McCain who unfortunately admitted in the primaries that the economy was not his strong suit.  Yet, amongst all the others, we nominated McCain (sigh).  Alas, Romney is articulate, energetic, and optimistic –characteristics that McCain sometimes lacks.  Romney’s direct and aggressive and will be able to hit Obama in ways that McCain can’t (or won’t).  I’m not sure how Romney helps McCain pick up any specific states other than Michigan perhaps, but I think it’ll strengthen the overall ticket down the road, potentially keeping Red states Red.  At least adding Romney will pull the ticket and message toward the Right for a change.

    I didnt know RI had three Republicans. Good to know.

    On Romney: I think he could help in Nevada and Colorado as well, states that are shaping up to be huge in Nov. the question you have to ask is does he hurt McCain elsewhere. That I dont know.
