He could sink away into the VP house and work on legislation day and night while Romney is out glad handing and making speeches....it might just be the best fit...if you assume Romney is the guy. And that is looking more and more likely every day.
    By doing what?

    If Romney wins the nomination, his veep will be a strong conservative. If he doesn't do that, his base will NOT be energized and that will mean BO wins again. The conservatives already know Romney is untrustworthy, he can't compound that problem by picking some weak ass RINO (daniels, huntswoman, christie, etc) as veep

    IMO, the strongest GOP ticket would probably be Romney + a Senator/Governor who is not currently in the field.

    Why would he choose another presidential contender to be his VP? Obama didn't. McCain didn't. GWB didn't. I don't think picking the VP from the pool of presidential candidates is the way things tend to go. More likely he'll pick someone who wasn't involved in this race, but is a supporter of his policy, and will bring in a demographic that he won't. I would imagine that he'll pick someone who's as mainstream Christian as possible to diffuse the Mormon thing, and who is as mainstream Republican economically to diffuse the issues about healthcare. Basically he'll need the most bland, vanilla, party line, talking point Republican he can. Mitt's advantages are that he's not a hyper-religious nut, and can appeal to some independents. But to shore up his base, and prevent them from voting for a Tea Party third candidate, he needs someone who will look good on Fox and soothe the fears of Fox viewers. Actually, with that in mind, Cain might be a good choice for him. The guy has no opinions of his own and is basically a party robot. But loyalty is an issue, too. You don't make the other side's general your right hand man.

    If Romney gets the nod, he'd have to really **** up the VP selection or the general campaign to keep me from voting for him.

    The problem being that the Vice-Presidency is WORTHLESS, and most Conservatives are not stupid enough to be drawn into voting for a candidate simply because his SIDEKICK is a better person than he is.

    Neither he nor the President he served under are Conservatives in any way, shape, manner, or form.

    Romney-Bachmann
    Romney-Gringrich
    I'm not assuming it's Romney, and every choice here has him at the top of the ticket, so I can't vote.

    none. You can switch the names around and it would be none.
