    I would say significantly so. Biden has a missing filter between his brain and his mouth, but he's a bright guy, and his politics are mainstream, probably more so than his boss. Bachmann, on the other hand, is pretty far to the right of the conservative mainstream.

    In any event, the odds of Romney picking Bachman are roughly equal to the odds of his picking me.

    I still think that Rubio is by far the most logical pick.

    Difference between Bachmann and Biden.

    Everyone has drank around someone like Biden, no one wants to be near Bachmann when drunk.

    The only thing better would be if he announced Sarah Palin would be his Secretary of State.

    This would be OK.

    A thousand thousand times worse. I would love to see a debate between Biden and Bachmann. He would chew her up and spit her out.

    Deliver the south? Are there even any southern states that aren't already 'delivered' to Romney by virtue of 'black and Democrat' being "worse" than 'white, but Mormon' to the average Bible-belter?

    The only "southern" states in play seem to be Florida...again...and Virginia, with an outside chance at NC.

    It would appear he would do best to pick someone that could deliver the rust belt.

    NYT says that ABC News says that the only female to have been vetted thus far by Team Mitt is Kelly Ayotte. She along with Rob Portman, Pawlenty, and Ryan. No Rubio yet. Sorry, no links...

    I didn't even know you were being vetted, Chi! Congratulations.

    Most VP candidates don't do much to deliver votes in November, but can have the potential to lose votes. The Hypocrats (with considerable assistance from the media) have been adhering closely to Saul Alinsky's rules to mitigate potential damage from their opponents by effectively ridiculing all conservative candidates, but especially conservative women, starting with Palen and then Bachmann and Haley. As a result, the Romney ticket will be unlikely to pick a woman and will stay in the middle of the road, whomever they choose. Romney is like a golfer going into the 18th hole with a three stroke lead. He's going to play it safe.

    It would be a close debate. Once it was over and fact checkers sorted through all of Biden's false facts she would be the clear winner and I think she's a dolt.

    Right. It's the Democrats fault that certain popular conservative women candidates are loopy and ill suited for the highest public offices.

    I thought Republicans were all about personal responsibility? How about giving us a decent choice instead of crying in your beer.

    And at least Democrats cloak their criticism in comedy -- pretty easy to distinguish (MSNBC aside, and it's not as if anybody watches that channel anyway). Faux News etc. presents theirs as legitimate news.

    your guy is dumber, no way, your guy is ....you're an idiot, no you are!
    and we wonder why we end up with the people we do


    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    Loopy and ill-suited are certainly opinions, not facts. Your mental template of what is good and proper is not everyone's - including mine. And of course, the Left really wants to help out the Right by finding the best candidate to run against. I'd think the Left would be begging for Bachmann if she's so terrible, not suggesting she be left off the ticket.

    On the other hand, if you ask for something and end up getting it, you have nobody to blame for it but yourself. So there's that.
