Musing about the GOP VEEP choice is as good a summer activity as reading a book at the beach or swinging in the hammock between a couple large shade trees.
After going over the full list of prospects on Politico.com, and listening to the other talking heads I am thinking it may not be anyone linked to Washington. That includes Senators like Ayotte and Rubio or Rep. Ryan.
Although Marco Rubio won our little on-line poll, I think he's not the choice. Too famous, too soon....Kinda like the guy in the White House now.
So if it's an outsider, you have to figure a governor. Jindle doesn't have the pizzazz....Unfortunately the GOP is gun shy over women so Gov. Martinez of NM is out.
One interesting name is that of Gov. Brian Sandoval of Nevada, who beat Harry Reid's son in the 2011 gubernatorial race in the Silver State.
Hispanic...turns 49 tomorrow....former AG and federal judge. Won two statewide races in a swing state.
There are probably downsides and I know little more than what I read today. However, if Mitt Romney goes outside the Beltway for a choice, a western governor in a state he needs might be his choice.
