    Winning? Not so sure.

    The “I don’t know” about human causation of climate change came off as a softening of his stance. In June, talking about global warming at a town hall in Manchester, N.H., Romney said, “I believe that humans contribute to that.” That statement drew him some unwanted enthusiasm: Al Gore wrote on his blog, “Good for Mitt Romney. . . . While other Republicans are running from the truth, he is sticking to his guns in the face of the anti-science wing of the Republican Party.”

    Id actually kind of prefer Rubio in the Senate. He can do more good there than as VP.

    You kidding?

    He'd add alot of Hispanics in the Republican column. Something they very much need.

    Personally I think Romney's going to go with Pawlenty..or Huntsman. But there might be a surprise.

    Doesn't take much to be a VP

    Look at the current moron in the VP position.

    Christ, you can't get dumber/bat shit crazier than that.

    Romney would never go with Huntsman. I don't think the nation would support two mormons in the top spot.

    And I dont think he will pick Pawlenty either. though to be honest I have no clue who he would pick.

    I think Rubio would be a waste as VP. We can get hispanic votes regardless. But Rubio can actually do good in the Senate.

    Besides, I dont think hispanics are going to vote for someone just because they are hispanic. Most I've met aren't racist.

    Any (R) candidate would have to be insane not to beg Rubio to join the ticket.

    I agree. No doubt it would pick up a lot of Hispanic votes.
