Romney had two choice when it came to running mate.
He could go toward the middle and pick someone who might appeal to moderates who voted for Obama in 2008, but are less enchanted with him now.
He could cave to the Tea Party faction of his own party and pick someone to prop up his right ring credentials.
I don't think there was ever any doubt he would go with the second option.
I just hope enough of those moderates he is ignoring get out and vote in November.
