Obama/Biden

And no way Romney wins with Portman. He needs a much more interesting running mate if he wants to beat Obama.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Not voting this year.  But Portman gives Romney a real shot at winning Ohio.  The auto-bailouts and falling unemployment make it possible that Obama can hold Ohio, and without Ohio, it's a lot harder to put together a winning electoral map for Romney in a close race.  Besides, Portman is smart, capable, and a good deal-maker, all very valuable traits in a VP.  In the race, you don't want someone who draws voltage out of the top of the ticket, but do want someone who can help you in a crucial region.

For some reason, I don't think Portman can help in states outside of Ohio.  He just doesn't have the stature, especially amongst southern evangelicals.  Romney def needs to win Virginia and Portman isn't going to help with evangelicals there who are skeptical of mormonism.  Of course, Romney appeals to the moderate-liberal types in NoVa as well, but they won't be a reliable voting bloc.  I just think Thune or Burr are far stronger choices, and can win more swing voters and swing states.

How can you doubt Winfield's amazing prediction skills, after he predicted Governor Witman election in the very state? Angry

Would Thune accept a place on a ticket that looks like it'll lose considering he's eying 2016?
