Why Romney? Because:
— He has much greater national appeal than the Seven (or 8 or 9 or whatever it is) Dwarfs that surround him.
— Lots of swing voters nationally will go for Romney, no way they’ll go for Cain, Perry, or any of the other GOTP midgets.
Why McDonnell? Because:
— He’ll bring Pat Robertson into the fold; ol’ Pat will give Romney the Mormon his blessing and that will quiet some of the “Romney’s not a Christian” noise.
— He can bring Virginia with him and the GOTP needs Virginia. While you and I may not think much of McDonnell, he won 59-41 and he can call in a lot of markers from Virginia Republicans who will campaign for him.
— He’ll draw the “Christian” vote nationwide.
Whether Romney-McDonnell can defeat Obama remains to be seen. Romney is polling well nationwide against Obama but it’s a long way to November 2008. I just wish we could do something about Slow Joe the VP.
