Romney's VP Should Be FedEx's Fred Smith
With that out of the way, let me elaborate.
Aside from the basic ideological differences, Mitt Romney brings two things to the party to differentiate against Obama:
1. Romney is experienced in general. Romney's resume may not match Ross Perot or George H.W. Bush in terms of some attempt at an objective measure of overall breath and degree of accomplishment, but he's close. Romney's resume spans finance, project management and governance of one of our original 13 states, across several decades.
Let's face it: That puts Romney in the top 0.00001% of people most qualified to be president, all other things equal.
In comparison, President Obama has, at best, a mediocre resume. Before stumbling into the presidency, he had stumbled into the Senate, preceded by some political hack appointments in notoriously corrupt Chicago. Before that, he was a guest lecturer in law and a general ACORN-style rabble-rouser.
