Romney's Stock Rising
Posted by Ashish on 07.15.2008



Many inside the McCain campaign seem to acknowledge that Mitt Romney's VP status is rising. Here is what McCain said about Romney this week.
"I'm appreciative every time I see Mitt on television on my behalf. He does a better job for me than he did for himself as a matter of fact."
Obviously the bad blood the two had during the primaries seems to be gone now. With the economy well established as the top issue in this election, Romney seems to be in a good position to get the #2 spot with McCain. But with Michigan starting to fall out of play for McCain, is Romney the type of game changer he needs? Judging by how Obama talked about Romney during the primaries, I suspect the Obama campaign would be mostly happy about McCain picking him. Talk about an easy way to deflect charges of flip-flopping and elitism. "McCain wants to call me a flip-flopper? Me an elitist? Perhaps he should look at his own running mate." The VP selection is much more important for McCain than Obama because it will serve as one of the last major moves McCain can make to try and close the gap with Obama. I'm not sure Romney will accomplish that. If the VP pick doesn't help McCain close the gap, he will be left waiting for an Obama error or scandal, and sitting around waiting for something that may or may not happen isn't the safest thing to do.
