Romney should let the convention pick his VP
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is expected to announce his vice presidential running mate any day now. He could make a conventional pick, for instance Ohio Sen. Rob Portman or former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. He could also throw us a curve ball with South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley or Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, the darling of the conservative movement. Mr. Romney has the power to choose absolutely anyone he wants, and no one but Mr. Romney and his closest advisors will have been consulted.
