Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

    Maybe Susana Martinez or Brian Sandoval, but they don’t appear interested. Chris Christie is a little scary.

    Perhaps a Democrat would be frightening.

    Paul Ryan I think would be the biggest disaster, and most likely of all the disaster picks.

    because it would be fun to see a GOP ticket that loses both of the states its principals have governed.

    …but if it cost us NJ that would be bad…

    I just can’t get on board with a lot of the over-confidence I’m seeing.

    Can he put Ohio in Romney’s column?

    Would his support of the auto industry bailout woo independents?

    Will his directorship of the OMB under Bush mean anything?

    Who should Mitt Romney choose as his running mate?

    According to a new national poll, there’s no consensus among Republicans. But a CNN/ORC International survey released Wednesday does indicate there’s an ideological split that could put pressure on Romney, the all but certain GOP presidential nominee, as he tries to make his decision.


    According to the survey, Condoleezza Rice is on top of the list. Twenty-six percent questioned said they would like to see Rice, who served as national security adviser and later as secretary of state under President George W. Bush, as the Republican vice presidential nominee. In second place in the survey, at 21%, was Rick Santorum, who was Romney’s chief rival for the nomination until early last week, when the former senator from Pennsylvania suspended his campaign for the White House.

    Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were each at 14%, with House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin at 8%, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal at 5%, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell at 1% and Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio at less than one half of one percent.

    if portman, looks like they’ll have some sales work ahead.
