For the past few days, The Takeaway has been speaking with reporters about possible Vice Presidential candidates. Manual Roig-Franzia of the Washington Post discussed Marco Rubio's potential last Monday. Then on Tuesday, M.L. Schultze, news director of affiliate station WKSU in Kent Ohio, laid out the potential for Ohio Senator Rob Portman. And yesterday, Bob Hennelly, contributing editor to WNYC, discussed his governor and neighbor in New Jersey, Chris Christie.

Today, The Takeaway looks at everyone else. Atlantic staff writer Molly Ball covered the conservative political action conference, CPAC, a few weeks ago, where potential Republican voters discussed who they’d like to see on their party's ticket.

Who cares? The GOP ticket is pretty much doomed.

For the average voter, the "Barack Obama is a bad shepherd of our economy" loses to "The GOP broke the economy and drove the budget into deficit AND THEN FIDDLED while the Middle Class burned."

All that is left is the TONS of negative advertising whose purpose can ONLY BE to freeze the undecided in place.

It is not going to be a landslide but the outcome will be clear. My question to the GOP will you man up and help him govern once he wins? Why should we believe you?
