After three and ahalf years of Biden, you really believe a VP must control his speech? At least West speaks from his heart with truth and a common belief with the conservative viewpoint. We need somebody like that in office. Teh left hemorrhages every time he talks, an d I like both what he says and their reaction. Let them spend the next four years saying bad things about a black man. hah
Editors' note: a version of this column originally appeared at the Daily Beast.

As Mitt Romney ponders the most fateful decision of his presidential campaign, he must move decisively to break a dysfunctional habit that’s afflicted his party for a half century. Since the end of the Eisenhower era, Republican presidential candidates have compiled a far more troubled record than their Democratic counterparts when it comes to selecting effective running mates. To overcome that pattern, the Romney team should review the most successful and most embarrassing vice-presidential nominees in recent political history.

Any list of clumsy, ill-advised GOP selections...
