If you are visiting this website, then you must assume that we want Mitt for McCain's VP pick because he'd make a great President. That's a given. But I believe that there are three ways that Romney would benefit McCain's bid for the White House.
Reason #1: Michigan. With Romney on the ticket, McCain would see a blue state turn red. Can you name any other potential VP that would deliver a traditionally democratic State? Sure, there are those who argue that Gov. Crist of Florida could deliver his swing state, but in reality McCain might be able to get that one without any help. But Romney knows how to speak to the people of Michigan and has a plan to save the car industry of America. McCain can't do it without Romney in Michigan.
Reason #2: The economy. Banks are closing. Stocks are plummeting. Gas costs four and five dollars a gallon. China is on the move. America is down but not out. McCain's weak spot is on the economy. Turnaround expert Mitt Romney is strong on the economy. You put Romney with McCain and you have an extremely strong ticket. Foreign policy and Washington experience from McCain and real-world outside of Washington experience from Romney. If they worked together, they could accomplish much. And none too soon. America needs the best she's got if we're going to fix the problems that we are currently facing. Who better than Romney to strengthen McCain's economic policy-making? Huckabee? (HINT: scholarships for illegals won't bring the price of gas down)
Reason #3: The Western United States. Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Montana, Nevada, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California and others would be electrified by having Romney on the ticket. There would be passion...and McCain needs passionate supporters. Several Ron Paul supporters have mentioned that Romney would be their second choice. McCain needs an energized base and Romney would deliver that needed energy.
No other choice can deliver so many goods to McCain as Mitt Romney. The two compliment each other well and seem to be strong where the other is weak. Besides, who else can we trust to be a heartbeat away from the Presidency?
