Romney Takes Potential Veeps for Test Runs

Mitt Romney has appeared on stage recently with a number of potential running mates, reports the Los Angeles Times, which many see as a "series of tryouts...as he tests the chemistry and optics of potential vice presidential picks."

"Though Romney is not expected to make a formal decision anytime soon, the vetting has clearly begun, with the campaign scrutinizing potential running mates' electoral experience, geographic desirability and affinity with GOP constituencies that remain wary of Romney... While nearly all of the likely prospects have steadfastly denied that they have any interest in the job because they are committed to their current jobs as governors and senators, many are also simultaneously burnishing their resumes."
