Its looking increasingly likely that it will indeed be Romney.
While I think that from an overall standpoint, Romney would be a very, very good choice, I personally am not a big fan. That said, I agree with
you, it would be nothing but a positive for McCain's campaign. Romney was a favorite among economic conservatives in the Republican party and, of
course, he adds credibility to the McCain campaign which has had struggled to find its bearings on the overall issue of the economy. Not only
that, but most polling I've seen also indicates that it strengthens McCain significantly in the Upper Midwest (Michigan, in particular), which is
where I believe this campaign will ultimately be fought.
Finally, as you say, Romney quite clearly proved that he's more than willing to go on the attack in the primaries. Given that the VP choice is
often used as an 'attack dog', its a perfect fit.
