    If Ryan continues to run for Congressman for Wisconsin's District 1 while running for VP, it will be an indication that he knows Romney will not win.

    No, it's a sign that he wants to keep the seat available for Governor to appoint.

    It would show a general lack of confidence.
    I know nothing of his district at home. He may be popular in a district that would elect a Dem were an open election held.
    Should Romney win in Nov. then he could resign later and allow the GOPer Governor to appoint another GOPer.
    Just a thought.

    You're assuming he will win re-election? Even without the VP selection, he is facing a tough re-election from Rob Zerban.

    It's an indication that it is too late in the process to take his name off the ballot.

    Governors don't appoint members of the House.

    You're right, sorry I've been traumatized in IL with the f'ing golden. Where is Jesse Jackson? Oh yeah, Mayo last I heard. Ah well.

    Could be. There is no evidence that Biden ever thought that Obama was a lock.
