I don't know whether you are correcting me or agreeing with me. I assumed Romney has salesmanship skills, which are similar to teaching skills, since to be a succussful businessman, you have to be able to sell you ideas. Whether he has the qualities or not is not necessarily the issue. The issue is that it was not done, period. Whether Ryan could have been used more effectively is also a good question. The problem with being a Vice-Presidential candidate is that you can't overshadow the boss.
