Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, never shies away from sharing his views on big political races. He has a regular newsletter and grabs a mic whenever he can. Today, he weighs in on the GOP veep-stakes. Who will Mitt Romney choose as his running mate now that he has all but secured the nomination?
Virginians might notice that local darling Gov. Bob McDonnell, who so desperately wants to be vice president, is not atop the list. Sabato ranked him in the middle of the second tier.
Sabato noted that many of the combos would make for a “white bread sandwich” ticket, i.e., a very white male ticket that affirms stereotypes about the Republican Party.
For McDonnell, it’s even worse. Sabato’s priceless analysis is that a Romney-McDonnell would be “White bread sandwich + mayo.”
How about it, RT readers? Whom should Romney choose as his running mate?
