If Mitt choses Thune it will be because he made 'most beautiful list' in 2005

Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) has reemerged as a viable vice presidential candidate who would check many of the boxes Mitt Romney is looking for in a running mate.

In an interview with The Hill, Thune acknowledged he’s been to Boston to meet Romney’s senior advisers and has met Beth Myers, who is leading the search for the vice presidential nominee.

Tall and telegenic — he ranked ninth in The Hill’s 2005 Most Beautiful list — Thune has been seen as a rising star with unlimited political potential ever since that South Dakota victory over then-Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle in 2004.

Apparently they think that putting Thune on the ticket will help in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

1. One problem

I don't really think things will change for Romney no matter who he picks for his VP. The more that comes out about his past, his refusal to put out more tax returns, his constant lying, and all the other things the show him to be out of touch with the real world, the less people like him, and the harder it is going to be for them to vote for him in November, no matter who he has as a VP.

Thune was supposed to be one of the big shots running for the nomination this year, but like Bush, and Christie, he to backed down and let the "clowns" run the circus! So many big names have already said they don't want to be the VP with Romney so it will be interesting to see just who he picks, or should I say who is willing to go down with him on his sinking ship!
