Is Ryan ripe for possible VP?
Speculation continues about a running mate for Mitt Romney, the assumed Republican presidential nominee.
Congressman Paul Ryan of Janesville was one of five possible vice presidential picks whose photographs adorned my TV screen last night during an "NBC Nightly News" report that suggested Romney’s decision might come this week.
This morning on the “Today” show, however, the same NBC reporter gave his VP summary, but only three possibilities were pictured—Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
Does that mean Ryan’s chances diminished overnight? That’s unlikely.
Even the possibility that Romney might choose Ryan means heady political discussions for this community and helps put Janesville on the national map. What do you think are Ryan’s odds of being selected and agreeing to run with Romney?
How do you think Ryan would help or hurt Romney’s chances of beating President Obama in November?
