Mitt has been scouring the options to pick a VP Running Mate who can actually bring voters to the Republican Ticket. Marco Rubio, a Cuban-American, might bring South Florida Hispanics to the Ticket; however, other Hispanics vote differently. Chris Christie was passed over because he is just too difficult to get his arms around–and Seamus might resist a co-passenger on the roof if they visit Canada. Now, who IS Rob Portman (Sen. R-O) again? John Huntsman, the only Republican Candidate who had any meaningful ideas was passed-over because Mitt doesn’t want to be overshadowed by another Mormon. Mitt even thought of his wife, Ann, but, as he told Bob Schieffer, she is addicted to horses–and perhaps not everyone owns a dressage horse AND has two Cadillac’s in the Barn. Lastly, Alan West is too eccentric.
But, then, he learned about this Barry guy, from Illinois–a state that generally votes Democratic. As the first Black VP Candidate, he could bring a lot of African Americans to the Ticket. Mitt was smiling now. Barry also has good vibes from Hispanics, Gays and Lesbians, and even Women. Mitt was ready to wake-up, when all of a sudden, Michelle’s image entered his Dream and nixed the whole thing.
