The question is who will Romney pick, not who he should pick.
I admit to editorial prejudice in selecting the options, presented in alphabetical order. The very tip-top tier is said to be Portman, Pawlenty, and Ryan. I put in Jindal because he’s extremely competent, he understands Medicare better than just about anybody, and Romney would be foolish to dismiss him. I’m putting in McDonnell because Romney could sure use some help in Virginia, and McDonnell surely wouldn’t hurt him with the base.
Notable omissions –and feel free to vote “other” and complain in the comments– Rubio and Rand Paul. I think Rubio is a smidge short on experience, and will irritate the base with his immigration policy. On the other hand, a truly balanced (not “comprehensive piece of [crap]“) immigration policy might be electorally helpful. I mention Rand Paul because I keep seeing these persistent rumors of papa Paul speaking at the convention and a general atmosphere of comity between Mitt and Ron.
Poll closes after one week.
