An exciting VP? Don’t go for it, Mitt
The narrative for choosing a running mate looks a lot like choosing the nominee. There are plenty of options, passionate feelings about who’d be best, and at the end of the day, the party learns to love the choice. For all of the discussion about playing to key states, adding foreign policy experience, or balancing a ticket’s ideology, the stark truth is that none of it really matters. In the end, there is only one imperative: don’t blow it.
