And Mitt's VP Pick Is ...Topics: Political News and commentaries
Just yesterday, I was saying the very same thing to a friend and fellow Romney supporter. Despite the fact that Team Romney could do with some excitement, Romey has clearly demonstrated that he's averse to risk ... and like Douthat aptly notes ... seems content with attempting to glide to 51 percent. Portman is about as plain vanilla as you can get, unexciting, and unlikely to make someone vote for Romney that wasn't already going to. But he is, indeed, competent and ready to be president if necessary ... and I think that's what's Romney's looking for. Also, it doesn't hurt that Portman is from Ohio.
Meanwhile, Intrade has Portman leading the pack of possible VP picks.
