Because nothing says conservative like a Maverick
It’s probably safe to say that the seven major speakers announced overnight will not be Romney’s vice presidential pick. Those speakers are: South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Arizona Sen. John McCain, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
I’ll give the Romney camp credit for selecting a few relatively conservative voices, but not for courting the moderate maverick vote.
