Time to bring back Wednesday Night Mud Wrestling to the White House. Looks like she's aged a little since her glamor shots profile pic was taken.

The VP will be one of these 3.

- Pawlenty

- Portman

- Palin

Pick one.

-----------------
BTW, have you noticed that when Gov. Sarah Palin endorses a candidate that they win?

It looks like we have a Tea Party Senator from Texas heading to the U.S. Senate.


U.S. Senator Ted Cruz

Pam Bondi led the fight against Obamacare, she is extremely tough and relentless, popular in Florida, where he needs to win, and there have been two recent scandals that took our Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll out of the running. I think he was seriously considering Carroll, because she was a popular black female Republican, but her recent lesbian allegations, HR problems, and now an arrest of her brother for drugs has crushed her chances.

Pam Bondi might be the next best choice for a female in Florida. She is well-known across the country, attractive, and tough.

This would not surprise me at all, and compared to Christie or Jindal, I think Pam Bondi is equally as good of a choice.

Actually, no.

She is extremely attractive in person. She might even look better now than she did when she was elected.

She talks fast, and she gets excited about the issues. She seems passionate on her agendas. She would entirely destroy Biden in any debate, I mean it would be an annihilation! Of course, she would probably crush Romney too!

The problem Romney has is this...... anyone qualified that he picks for VP, will be a better choice for president than he is. It will be impossible to pick a VP candidate that helps his ticket that doesn't outshine and overshadow him.

Many, many names are floated in behind the scenes conversations. Then they're leaked by deliberate intent to see what sort of reaction they get...

Happens in every election.

Personally I like the Portman possibility. Though I still have soft spot in my heart for Condi Rice...though I know that's not happening.

My guess is she's in line to be his Attorney General. Even he is not so out of touch to make her his VP pick. I live in Florida. She is hot...but....she is largely regarded as a party hack shill who advanced her way up wearing knee pads.

Everything I've read about her agrees with what you just wrote. Though she a little light on the national scene in terms of name recognition.

She wouldn't be a horrible choice.

Romney has to be careful not to pick a VP candidate who appears more competent and/or qualified than he is. 'course so too did our current President, and look who's a heartbeat, or lack thereof, away from the Oval Office...

Pajoly mentioned she is considered a "party hack."

That might be the one thing negative I can agree with, but at the same time I don't think it would hinder the election in any way. Romney is a party hack too. The GOP wants party hacks with large ambitions, and Bondi definitely fits that bill.

I think with her intelligence, passion, and looks, in addition to her ambition and ability to play party politics, she might be the perfect choice for Romney.

A party hack, from a certain aspect, mightn't be a bad thing. If there's one thing a President needs, it's loyalty from his/her VP... The President has to know that the VP is going to toe the line where policy is concerned, and not go off on a tangent that leads to issues. Frankly, I'm amazed that Biden has done as well as he has...mostly I'm sure because his handlers have him on a very short leash, meaning Pres. Obama...

Attorney Generals, in *ahem* general, are hacks. The position is a thank you for their support. Doesn't mean they're not competent, or capable of handling something greater.

Hack, in this case, may not be a bad thing.

I'd better be careful, or I'll start wearing a Bondi/Romney button...

First, Romney isnt meant to win.


I’m beginning to get that sense…he’s just not acting like a guy with fire in the belly. Something seems fake (or staged) about this campaign.


At this point, i think Rob Portman seems like the most likely candidate, but a lot will may change between now and the convention.


He has many great choices but I would prefer Rubio personally. He has better name recognition, he best articulates the conservative message (much better than Romney himself) and he’ll bring Florida for sure.


The fact that you can fathom that Romney might not be meant to win, should tell you that none of it matters and that there is only one party. The corporate party. As hard as it is to break away from our personal political stances, we need to, otherwise we are just feeding the machine,

He needs a swing state...

His choices are Paul Ryan ...Wisc., Rob Portman (OH) or Tim Pawlenty (MN)

My guess is Portman since OH is in play and has the most electoral votes...

LOL..
Well you included Palin on your list so obviously you can't be taken seriously.

Have you seen all those lines of people wrapped around Chick Fila?

Those same lines will be wrapped around the polling booths !

President Mitt Romney is a done deal.

This attack on Chick Fila just gave us 3 more seats in the U.S. Senate.

More GOP/Tea Party members will be added to the House.

----------
Can't you guys do anything right?


Nobody cares about the VP.

This election will be a referendum on Obama and his failed economic policies.

Ya, I was starting to second-guess my own praise of Bondi!


I'm not planning to vote for Romney, but of all the threads, and all the suggestions I've seen about the VP choice, the only two that I've seen that could actually work were Condi Rice, and Pam Bondi. That just might work to give him a shot against Obama.

yes and no. I follow politics, and find the whole game fascinating. I can recognize it's all a game, and still enjoy the tactics used. Just like sports.

Really? "Breathtaking'? What about her is 'breathtaking'?

Also, you probably should pick who is going to be second in line based on looks.

Nor am I. President Obama isn't getting it either...

I'm going to vote Libertarian again...it felt so good to do it last go 'round, I'm up for it again. Not to mention I agree with most of the plank they put forth.

I do like the idea of a strong female VP candidate. Ferraro back in the day got my vote, almost. Too bad she was running with Mondale...just too much to over look.

Looks are part of leadership, and maybe not the least important... Strange as that may sound.

A leader must look the part, as well as act the part.

Another thing in her bio that people will wonder about, two prior marriages (she's currently engaged again apparently her her planned May wedding was called off last minute), one lasted a grand total of five years, the other only two.

She also has accepted campaign contributions from companies under investigation by her AG's office, supposedly.

I'm just pulling stuff I'm reading from various sources online, so who knows? But all I'm saying is that it looks like she's got significant hurdles that could hinder her as a choice. I'd be stunned if she got picked.

That is the same problem with getting a strong VP candidate this time around! They don't want to be tainted by the inclusion on a weak Romney ticket and a losing campaign. Rubio doesn't want it, Rice doesn't want it, but since Bondi is a relative new-comer on the big stage, she might actually take the gig.
