To the point that Romney "ran very successful business" is extremely debatable. She was Secretary of State. Maybe she didn't outsource several jobs or bankrupt companies, but I think her resume would suffice. And lastly, you can save your approval or disapproval for somebody else. I won't be sleeping any bit less because of it.
You're talking to me all wrong... It's the wrong tone. You do it again and I'll stab you in the face with a soldering iron. Hey, tell me, does your mother sew? BOOM. Get her to sew that!
She may do more harm than good in states with larger evangelical populations. A vp rarely gains many votes but with Romney's shaky abortion stance, putting a pro-abortion vp on the ticket would do harm in states like Virginia, Florida, the Carolinas, etc. States where 1/2 a percentage point would hurt.

If I was a Republican, I would also be concerned about the Tea Party/Social Conservative effect on the party. As we've discussed in the other thread, they've managed to alienate African-Americans. Now, they're trying to alienate Hispanic-Americans. Not sure whose next, but they seem resourceful.
My guess Romney will end up doing the same thing Obama did and go the 'Old White Guy that can be president if I die' route. Romney seems extra cautious about his political choices, so I don't expect him to be any different this time.
I can't tell if this is sarcasm, but if not, how in any way is it a surprise that she's being considered.And a surprise name is now near the top of the list: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice!

I think Rubio is the no brainer choice. He doesn't have much experience but he's extremely bright and would bring a lot of excitement to the ticket. And if he can match Jon Stewart blow by blow in a debate, he'll wipe the floor with Biden.
As bad as it seems, she seems to be one of the few VP potentials who have been talked about that does have foreign policy experience. A lot of the other folks have managed on a state level.
