Will adding another "GOP establishment" pick hurt the conservative base's enthusiasm even more?


not likely. the prospects of defeating Obama will keep their enthusiasm very high. no matter who (within reason) is the GOP VP

he's going to pick the governor of New Mexico.

1. He needs help with women.
2. He needs help with Latinos
3. Will try and make New Mexico into a swing state

Susana Martinez or Ramirez or whatever her name is.

Don't count on it.

He needs to worry more about Ohio and Florida than NM.

It's too naked a play for Hispanics and women to reverse everything said throughout this primary season, especially about the border fence and how Romney agrees 100% with the AZ laws regarding immigration, as well as some of the harsher comments about the Dream Act.

There's no way to walk that back now.

Picking a conservative woman does not win you the women's vote. There's nothing that liberal and left-leaning moderate women hate more than conservative women.

Hmm, Kay Bailey Hutchinson would be an interesting pick if they are looking at women.

i agree with that, see Sarah Palin.

However, as much as they say Obama's got an enthusiasm drop-off, I still think its higher than Romney's.

No one is horribly excited about Mitt Romney. Maybe having the 1st female, 1st hispanic, Vice President may change that enthusiasm for 5-10% of the population, enough to win.

I don't see them wanting to have their campaign associated with W. They barely mention at all.

Rubio is scary, as a DEM, for the future. He'll be hard to stop, if he survives the vetting process, and he will easily turn the 25/75 disadvantage to 75/25 the other way around in terms of driving the Hispanic vote.

As far as debaters in my lifetime, that I've seen personally:

1) Mario Cuomo
2) Bill Clinton
3) Jesse Jackson
4) Barack Obama


Picking Santorum is insane. Hilary Clinton has the same exact demographic in terms of her appeal, and his presence on the ticket will scare almost every woman in America out to vote. Obama's ego is too big, and so is Biden's, but the perfect countermove to that would be placing Hilary on the ticket as VP.

Not really, he might peal away a few but most latinos are Democrats because they are blue collar folks and see the GOP as hostile to minorities.

I think his "best" option would be Brian Sandoval. Unlike some other options being mentioned to appeal to hispanic voters, Sandoval would actually be qualified to take over the Presidency if needed. He's a Governor, former federal judge, held statewide offices, etc.

Except very few people have even heard of him. I thought I followed presidential politics pretty closely and that name has never once been on the radar screen nationally.

But he'll never be a decent 3b option for the Giants unless he can keep his weight under control.

It didn't work out so well for the last VP candidate no one had heard of before her selection.
