Allen West will bring a strong conservative streak to the ticket, strong military support, will take the race card out of the Obama deck and will absolutely pulverize Joe Biden and Obama one on one. He's the candidate of our dreams. Not only that, he would be an automatic for the 2016 and/or 2020 election.

And you don't think the fact that West was fined 5,000 back in 2003 for torture will not be brought up? Also, he retired soon after - forced???

Oh sure, West is a real torturer.

Karla, if that's going to be your defense, why don't you just save some time and money by handing us the keys to the White House right now?

The American people do not approve of torture - or of Bush and Cheney for that reason (at least one of the many). I am just saying - it WILL be brought up. I would keep him hidden away in Florida

The America people are fine with water-boarding terrorists for information.
As frontrunner Mitt Romney continues to solidify his status as the likely nominee, speculation is turning to potential VP picks for the GOP ticket in November. Many names have been thrown around, but how do the candidates actually feel?

Let's take stock of the current crop:

Marco Rubio: Sen. Rubio is probably the politician who has built the most buzz in recent months. His endorsement of Romney recently was a help for the frontrunner and he has built a good relationship with the Massachusetts politician. Betting site Intrade gives him a 25% chance of being the VP pick.
