Who Should Be Mitt Romney's Vice Presidential Pick?

Marco Rubio? Chris Christie? Bobby Jindal? Condoleezza Rice? Let us know your choice for Mitt Romney's running mate in 2012.

Who will be Mitt Romney's vice presidential pick?

With Romney having emerged months ago as the likely Republican presidential candidate, his choice for VP is one of the reamining pieces of intrigue this election season. 

The New York Times breaks down some possible choices for Romney's running mate. Among them: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Flroida.

Other speculation has focused on former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who said last month it's "not in the cards," and ex-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Some have even suggested that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, , would be a good choice.

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) have also been mentioned.

Romney hasn't indicated who he'll pick, though he did say earlier this month at a town hall in Ohio that his running mate will be "a conservative," CBS News reports.

Who do you think Romney should pick as his vice presidential candidate? Post a comment below.

Actually, Representative Ryan with his many years of experience would make an excellent Vice-President. The nation requires a man of integrity and financial savvy to dig us out of the bankruptcy we are facing. However, jailing many a Wall Street desperado would enhance our trust and confidence in the presence of justice.

Rubio is another wacko Tea Bagger...the guy has been corrupt his whole career.

Ryan is a pawn for the 1% of the richest americans......this guys ideas have been lampooned by the CBO, as they would actually increase the debt instead of lowering it. Instead of focusing all his cuts on the poor and middle class, he needs to share the pain with the rich, but he is incapable of doing this.

The Constitution says nothing about parents being a factor in presidential qualifications. Plus, the current president's father was not born in the U.S. and he (President Obama) is president. The Constitution says, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States." U.S. Const. art. II, § 1. Therefore, if Rubio was born in the U.S. he WOULD BE qualified to be vice president. Hence, he could be president if the one in office died, was removed through impeachment by the Senate, or did a Nixon and resigned.
