Ann Romney said Mitt was considering people he can get along with. Automatically, that's moronic because it suggests he would dismiss the most qualified person by lack of congeniality.
Kennedy chose Johnson even though they weren't friendly to each other because Johnson was a positive difference maker in a close election.
Romney is probably not smart enough to select the best VP candidate. Who ever he picks will likely either make no difference or it may harm.
But, Romney is not honest/transparent/likable enough to win any way.

It will be crucial and undoubtedly would affect the outcome of the election.
He should pick someone that is strong on foreign affairs and/or social development; something other than his own area of expertise. Romney himself is an economist, so picking another economist would be a waste.
And needless to say, his pick would have to be someone that can hold their own in interviews, and debates, and is also qualified to be the president in the event that the president is assassinated, or the party wants to run the VP after the President's second term.

At this point & time, I'd put a lot of money, on Rob Portman.... McCain made the mistake of having a good looking woman, over shadowing him... Romney needs a "guy",,,, even more boring, than he is...

Romney won't win regardless of who he picks as his running mate. A good choice might help him make it a close election, but he's going to lose because he has no popular appeal himself.

I think it will play a major factor. I thought the talk of condi was a good possibility but she doesnt want it. now the talk is about Patraeus but i dont know how real that is.
people like Pawlenty, Christie etc... doesnt excite me
