This AM's WSJ: Review & Outlook: Why Not Paul Ryan? - WSJ.com Personally I think Ryan is too valuable where he is. I think Portman will be the pick, and I think he will do a fantastic job. Romney's VP will be sort of like Dick Cheney in worjking Congress to get his bills passed. Working Congress will be an absolute requirement. That eliminates Pawlenty and, g-d help us, Rice, as well as Christie.
