    Forget Huck and Mitt: Who will be the next GOP VP? - The Week

    Although pundits are spilling ink forecasting the GOP's likely presidential candidates, writes Alexander Burns at Politico, the party is more fired up by its "unprecedented" range of potential VP nominees. It's a different story than 2008, when John McCain "plucked Sarah Palin from political obscurity" in the absence of persuasive options. Next year, the GOP will be "flush with talented, fresh-faced officeholders" ready to support a more experienced presidential nominee. "Forget about Mitt, Huck, and Newt," says Burns. Republicans are buzzing about Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and New Mexico Gov. Susan Martinez.

    It’s almost as though there is more excitement over the deep pool of vice presidential prospects than over the emerging roster of presidential candidates, which is largely composed of white, male, former and soon-to-be-former governors, none of them from the biggest battleground states. On the vice presidential level, Republicans already are gushing over the sheer diversity of the candidates — unprecedented in terms of race, gender, geography and political experience — who could fill out the 2012 ticket...

    Chris Christie
    Scott Brown
    Marco Rubio
    Susan Martinez

    All are more exciting than the current GOP presidential contenders. Putting one in as a VP will put them in the forefront of the 2016 election with a crop of young exciting GOP contenders

    That's the game, they tell you who the "smart" choice is, hope that you pick them, then they trash them. (See John McCain, the "moderate" Maverick)

    Read Alinsky, it's all explained there.

    The choice of VP is critically important to the GOP because it's a chance to try to fix what they screwed up when they nominated the top of the ticket. That is unless you believe that the last six elections were a fluke and they'll get it right for the first time since 1984...

    The selection of potential veeps are more impressive than most of the front line candidates

    Whoever is selected will have a leg up for the 2016 bid

    GOP doesn't have a chance in 2012. It will be 2016 when they make a serious run
