C-

I don't think she brings much to the ticket, and is another unknown. She speaks clearer, but it would be reminiscent of Palin.

F - If MItt loses the nomination it will be because of a demonstrated lack of ability to connect with voters despite massive advantages in fundraising and organization.  (Santorum would be a good choice for Mitt's running mate so as to hopefully nail down the base, tho not the best one in my opinion.)

D - Sorry to be harsh but Jeb Bush would not accept being on a ticket with Santorum --and with a name like Bush you simply cannot be behind Santorum...I mean second to Santorum.

D-, The ticket would get massacred over Foreign Policy. Add Santorum's 'We've found WMDs' to Rohrabacher fighting side by side with Mujahedin and the consequences aren't pretty for the GOP.

B- One of the most popular Republican politicians with independents, but has been out of office for too long, is controversial with the base, and can't help Santorum carry any states.

B-  A great way to balance the ticket. A moderate. A Hawk. ...but isn't from a different state or a swing state.

Effective policing requires to know when backing down is in the best interest of public safety.  By all accounts, the culture of the Ferguson Police was ignorant of that fact, and instead treated Cartman of South Park as a role model for how to be a police officer.

And you're supposed to offer a grade.

F - Turner won't help and using him as a running mate lessens the chance of the GOP holding on to whatever he district he gets redistricted to.

F. There's not much that seems particularly remarkable about Cuellar other than the fact that he's Hispanic. Oh, and a DEMOCRAT.

A+ Tisei would result in a Santorum victory in all fifty states (plus Washington D.C.) and a 20-point victory in the popular vote.
