    Veeps have to be CFR and Tr-Lateral types to even be considered, the most obvious was Reagans' veep. Check out "Slow Joe" Biden and you'll see. It's an insurance policy against any President going rogue and not doing what the Bankers tell him to do.

    Does "The Donald" even belong to any of that?

    Yeah, sure. Trump strikes me as the kind of guy who really wants to be the #2 on a ticket and the go-to guy for foreign heads of state funerals for 4 years. Yep, sure sounds like the type of ambition that's gotten him where he is today.

    Mittens has proven to me that he is not half as smart as I once thought he was, but even he isn't that stupid. He would never pick Trump as his running mate. Doing so would completely kill any chance he has at winning. Romney has one choice and one choice only; he has to pick Rubio, because he has to win Florida. Rubio is the only person out of the potential running mates that I see who would most likely deliver a big swing state to Romney. Picking Santorum would not deliver Pennsylvania; it would almost assuredly cost him Pennsylvania. If for some reason he does not want Rubio, his second option would be Rob Portman. Portman might be able to help deliver Ohio which would be just as important. The difference is that Rubio's name recognition is much better nationally.

    It would be a very bad idea for Romney to pick trump. It would kill his campaign instantly.

    I agree with you sallow.

    what he really wants is more free airtime to promote his shitty TV shows.


    the republican party has created a mess of their own party

    He didn't want to be President either..for the reason you mentioned here.

    Trump is a flim flam man only interested in a buck.

    Romney's not much different..but he doesn't have a show.
