I guess tonight is as fine a night as any for speculation about Mitt’s number two. Lot’s of names are being floated in the press pool and it’s time to let a thousand drinking games bloom.
DougJ wrote about Mitt’s VP follies in an earlier post, but I think it’s time to place your bet and name names.
So, who do you think will end their political career by accepting a position under Mittens?
I think it will be T-Paw. He was the first to cut a deal with Romney when he dropped out of the GOP race and then endorsed Mitt. If T-Paw had the fire in his belly to win he would have been the anti-Mitt and won his Party’s nomination. Instead he was just T-Paw. Romney sniffed him and he rolled over to let Mitt rub his belly.
Romney is a coward and I can’t see him picking a VP candidate who isn’t submissive to him and that’s why I think it will be T-Paw.
Of course, because Mitt is a coward he might also pick Paul Ryan to please the wingnuts nipping at his heels.
What do you think?
