What if No One Wants to be Romney's Running Mate?

Jamelle Bouie: "Remember, in the modern era, it's rare for a losing Republican vice presidential nominee to become the nominee in a later election. Dan Quayle, for example, is a punchline, not a presidential candidate, and the same goes for the most recent member of the club, Sarah Palin. Which is to say that, in a world where Republicans don't see a future for Romney, we should expect the vice presidential 'race' to become a microcosm of the nomination contest, ambitious Republicans keep themselves out of the running, and leave the field to second and third string politicians who have nothing to lose from a defeat in November."
