Romney as McCain's VP choice: Don't do it!

There's been some recent speculation that McCain might pick Romney as his VP.

That would be a national tragedy. Picking someone of dubious pro-life credentials and a stiff personality is not the way to generate excitement among the base. Even Rush Limbaugh has pooh-poohed a Romney rerun.

Romney's money couldn't buy him victories in the primary season. And I don't buy this talk about McCain attracting Clinton voters by picking a moderate VP. The Clinton cronies are just angling for a VP slot.

McCain has an uphill battle to fight in overcoming the he's-just-Bob Dole-all-over-again factor. A candidate with charisma -- like Huckabee or Jindal -- might give him the needed boost to win it all. Give the nod to Romney and much of the party will nod off to sleep this November.
