Posted By: sufferinSuccotash Just quickly scanning the national news today, I am noticing that Ryan is attracting a lot of press attention wherever he appears.
Seems like Ryan will quickly overshadow Romney, and no presidential candidate wants a running mate who does that. Mitt is already beginning to look like an afterthought in the campaign.
Don't be surprised if the RNC leadership changes its mind and orders a last minute switcharoo at the convention to a softer, gentler choice like maybe Pawlenty. If Ryan does stay on the ticket, as he probably will, it will be Ryan who is Mitt's major headache, not Obama.
Cheney and Bush were almost similar, except Cheney loved lurking behind the shadows and didn't care for the spotlight. Ryan, however, can't seem to do that, he loves the attention, and who knows, maybe sees this as a stepingstone to his own presidential run in 2016.
