For the voters, it only matters on who he picks as Vice President. 

A vice president with a lot of experience is usually seen as a good thing for the ticket, and can serve to balance out any inexperience or naivete on the president.

...or draw to attention your own youth and inexperience (see Bentsen, L.)
Dukakis was leading the polls against the wimpy GHWB.  It was only after huge negative ad spending that Bush pulled it out.  They were both bad candidates, but it wasn't Bentsen's fault.
