You -- around people that's just gonna talk about what it was.
Because they you know the company reported a little respect has -- business that.
He might feel it's.
A -- but I really love this -- USA in this job.
First term -- New Jersey governor Chris Christie who had said there's no way he would go on the ticket now sounding a little did you think might need be he might want the job.
Also signing -- saying no he is freshman senator Marco Rubio of Florida.
Let let's put those.
Names down because these names are starting to -- very important.
-- it it's sort of interesting to me.
To think death.
All of these folks who had said no are variously now being -- tried out.
Now that -- acting like he wants the job after he set out his credentials and -- -- -- Rubio called a major foreign policy speech last week he's also working on the DREAM Act 2.0.
All of that suggesting that.
You know maybe he would want the job that's where governor Jeb Bush by the way we gotta put his name on the ticket.
Because he's the one recommending.
At least publicly first.
Romeo he gets complicated does that then there's freshman senator Kelly -- you -- Of New Hampshire.
Well she's a long shot.
I guess in -- way they all are at this point.
And one thing that you'll see there it is it's.
There's not a lot of experience there and then South Carolina first term governor Nikki Haley.
Pales on the list of course is well.
Then we have I mean -- There are lots of other folks we need to put on here Christie and rubio.
Haley they -- all rookies senator Rob Portman Portman is on the list and and it's being well talked about rather favorably in some quarters.
But he is generally considered well Politico dubbed him vice president -- because they.
They consider him a little walking unflappable that by the way is code for boring but.
In many cases Portman also served as director of the Office of Management and Budget under president George W.
You know another risky choice would be House Budget Committee chairman congressman Paul Ryan.
You know what does he bring to it.
You know what everybody kind of figure it out the rise the conservatives on the guy but he could be polarizing for moderate so again the calculus -- a little intriguing.
And now secretary of state Condoleezza Rice her name is in this thing.
And in that she's pro choice so in a lot of quarters that automatically means that well -- it just isn't gonna happen.
So as I said I have an idea for governor Romney to consider.
At a time when we're so divided so partisan so -- we need leadership.
So here we go well and I'm recommending some on I think would be good for the times in which we live.
There's no way that there I'm saying he's perfect none none are.
But he's got a lot of great stuff about.
Amongst those things he's decorated marine he's a former secretary of the navy.
His last name is let's just get right to web apps it's Jim well he's an accomplished author a novelist and no yes.
He's a Democrat remember I said this might not go down too well with some.
But what really commence in two is he's a retiring Democrat from the US senate.
Edwards he's a politician who doesn't really like politics and that's kind of -- how the country's feeling about politics right now I think there might be a connection there.
And leaders true leaders always understand the importance of not only intelligence and talent and commitment.
But also the independence of spirit that great moments from great challenges demand.
I have probably governor Romney has a chance to be just such a leader.
And I think he would be well served.
To demonstrate commitment to believe all America by bringing in for example senator Jim -- on -- the ticket as his vice president.
By the way I -- -- senator Webb what he thought about the idea.
I didn't think I'd much like his answer hope governor Romney will give it also -- some serious thought.
Maybe then those senator might as well you never know.
