Mitt Romney's VP Choice
If she's up for it, I'm thinking he should consider Condoleezza Rice. She won't overshadow him, she has strong conservative credentials, the religious right will feel safe, she will be a welcome contrast to his stiffness (but not too much of a contrast), she will be capable in a debate against Biden, she is unlikely to make any huge mistakes, her closet seems to be pretty much empty of skeletons....
Update: Oops. Condi has made statements supporting the status quo on abortion rights, which makes her pro-choice, which in today's Republican world puts her outside of contention. Never mind that abortion rights are a sideshow issue - something of trivial relevance to the work of a President or Vice President, and something the Republican Party shows little interest in actually addressing, save perhaps by accident - the charlatans, opportunists and demagogues of the Republican Party have pushed it to center stage.
