Richard Burr.  Then when the Republicans unexpectedly lose the House while gaining the Senate, and there is a electoral college tie, the House proves unable to elect a President, but at long last a Burr who was a Republican Vice-Presidential nominee will end up being President!

Aaron Burr lives!

If it's Haley Barbour, the headlines could read, "Barber picks Barbour."

Burr makes sense to me, personally.  Southern, solid conservative credentials but not insane, and from a swing state.

Burr has problem of voted for DADT repeal. I think that Ayotte, Corbett and McDonnell are choices who can help Romney.

Do we really need 100 threads about the VEEP selection?  I reiterate the call to make one thread and sticky it.  That would seriously unclog the board.

The hilarious thing about this list is that each and every person on it will hurt the ticket.

Yeah, but there will still be a net gain. You liberals seem to miss that net gain concept lately... Coughcoughbain.

I still think Martinez would be the best choice. It won't be her though. I'm thinking it'll be Rubio.

If Romney wants to win, he'll pick Bush.

If Romney wants to play it ultra-safe, he'll pick Pawlenty, but that might actually hurt him because TPaw was only slightly popular in Minnesota, and he's only slightly popular with evangelicals, and he is slightly popular in the midwest; so he could hurt the ticket by having zero strengths which will be seen as a major weakness.  He's a DC outsider, so that is his only ace card. 

If Romney wants to go with pure competence, then it will be Portman, who doesn't have much political popularity, but will be able to run the executive branch effectively. 

I'm surprised that more established senators haven't gotten more consideration.  I think Burr, DeMint, Thune, and Alexander would all be safe choices, with established political capital within their states and among evangelicals.

Personally, I think it'll be Jim DeMint, Haley Barbour, Bob McDonnell, or Rick Santorum.

With all due respect, do you really believe that Santorum will be given serious consideration?

Interesting.  Can you explain your reasoning please?

Santorum has a big enough following among the right-wing base.

He's not my favorite, of course, but nobody in the GOP is.
