WAIT -- THIS IS THE SLICK, PROFESSIONAL CAMPAIGN WITH THE EXPERIENCED CANDIDATE?
Just up at the Huffington Post (emphasis added):
In a radio interview with Sean Hannity on Friday, Mitt Romney floated several names of politicians who he believes would make good running mates for the eventual GOP presidential nominee.
When asked by Hannity who would make "anybody's short list," Romney ticked off the names of many Republican governors, including Brian Sandoval of Nevada, Susana Martinez of New Mexico, Chris Christie of New Jersey, Nikki Haley of South Carolina, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Bob McDonnell of Virginia. He also named two former governors-- Haley Barbour of Mississippi and Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota....
Really, Mitt? Haley Barbour? A guy who's pardoned eight men who killed their wives or girlfriends, two of them earlier this month as part of a 215-person pardon-palooza that included 27 people convicted of murder or manslaughter? A guy who, now that he's left office, is moving back instantly to his former extremely lucrative career as a lobbyist, as well as a speaker earning five figures per corporate speech? You mentioned him today, Mitt?
And you're the "electable" Republican? The one with the best chance of winning?
