I was shocked by the Ryan pick. It was political suicide and so far you've seen this every day on the campaign trail since he was picked. He is an interesting guy but in my view not presidential material. He has never been able to inspire, and that's what separates the men from the boys. Santorum was the only candidate who could inspire.
It was a mistake for the republicans to float Portman for so long. It should have always been Rubio.
