1. Mitt Romney's Vice Presidential Pick: Signs Point To Risk Avoidance

WASHINGTON -- If Haley Barbour advised Mitt Romney about whom to pick for his running mate, the former Mississippi governor might repeat something he said in a book about his home state's politics: "Never make a political decision until you have to, for things could always change."

Romney's search for a running mate will be guided by a few factors, and the individual qualities and resumes of each potential pick will play an important role. But there will be another significant element: the situational dynamics of the presidential election four months from now, when the GOP convention in Tampa begins on Aug. 27.

Will Romney be trailing President Obama in the polls so much that he needs a jolt, a game changer, a boost of energy? Or will the race be neck and neck, in a dead heat? If so, he will likely be seeking a less risky choice, someone who will not affect the race significantly in either a positive or negative way.

"How that dynamic shakes out will have a lot to do with how a vice presidential pick is made," said Taylor Griffin, a Washington-based consultant who worked in the White House for President George W. Bush and on Republican Sen. John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign.

5. Mitt's in a bind

He can't pick someone more energetic and likeable than he is because for the most part, people don't vote based on who the vice-president will be so it will just highlight how bland and unlikeable he is.

He can't pick someone just like or worse than he is in personality because then there's no added excitement to the ticket, resulting in probably not even getting the obligatory bump in polls politicians normally get after a running mate announcement.

10. Mitt's Idea of Poor People Is Anyone Whose Net Worth Is Less Than $100 million

Anyone with a $1 million or less, he doesn't even consider them human.

11. This Presidents biggest mistake

 

was not arresting all of this open crime. John Edwards may be in some mess (selective prosecution) but he did say that Obama is too nice to be President. I'm sure alot comes from the Clintons. You know triangulation (strangulation.)

Even with all of his money he is not charismatic, bright or attractive. Get out! He will just be Bush 3.
