Honestly, if Romney is the nominee and really wants to win the election, he should select Jeb Bush.  Sure its a risk, but he could carry Florida and Ohio against Obama.  Its not as desperate as the Palin pick, but Jeb knows his stuff, is competent, and still has a Christian base (even though he is a converted Catholic).  I think Jeb realizes that he would never be president, but voters may be able to like him better as VP.  I think the GOP challenger really needs to swing for the fences and a guy like Thune would not help in Florida or Ohio.

I think Romney needs a Southern politician on the ticket. What about Richard Burr?

A Southerner is the last thing any GOP candidate needs. Bush is fresh in the minds of many and Huckabee strikes almost as much fear as Palin.

I think Romney could have a southerner, but it has to be one that has proven to be successful at governing or legislating, and doesn't come off as a demagogue or loon. That's why I said Hutchison or McDonnell.

See McCain/Romney would have been 51-48 or 51-49. That's still not good enough to win though. However, Palin still helped the ticket. McCain vs Obama without VP's would've been a 10 point race. In 2012 if Romney runs I think that Jeb Bush would suit him well and so would someone like John Thune or Eric Cantor even though they don't know each other.

Its so funny that Palin helped McCain in the polls, but then when the shat hit the fan with wall street, voters decided Obama/Biden was more competent to handle the issue. 

People realized that Palin was unexperienced and that McCain was too old.  The Republicans need some real Adults on the ticket and they will have a fighting chance.
