There are a lot of good conservatives and smart business men who would be an asset to a Mitt Romney presidency. Oh, please Lord it has to happen. Two of those being Marco Rubio and Rob Portman, a financial man. But I think the best choices Mr Romney can make for his running mate are, and not necessarily in this order, but ladies before gentlemen. Condi Rice (EXCELLENT CHOICE) and Retired Lt Col Allen West (ANOTHER EXCELLENT CHOICE). Rpomney needs an expert on the middle east as his running mate. Miliitant Islam is our (the world's) enemy. And there are no 2 better people in the Conservative Party that know Islam the way Ms Rice and Mr West do. My personal fav, and millions of others think the same way is Rep West. A fiery fighter.
