Honestly, I think he’ll now have to go with somebody like Romney and not Pawlenty, or else risk Biden eating a less experienced debater for lunch.
Here’s some more speculation…
One thing’s for sure…the candidate will have to be pro-life or else enough of the evangelicals will stay home to basically clinch this for the Dems. So Romney fits that mold, as well as being able to go toe to toe with Biden. And Romney helps McCain on the economy.
Also, think of the contrast in the debate with Biden talking foreign policy and Romney talking about the economy. The pluses to a Romney pick are obvious.
What do you think?
