Sabato’s Crystal Ball On, Romney Hops On The Ryan Express

Larry J. Sabato from the University of Virginia Center for Politics, looks closely at Mitt Romney’s pick of Paul Ryan for VP. Sabato calls him a national pick, and not someone just to pick up Wisconsin. “By selecting Ryan, Romney has essentially taken ownership of Ryan’s budget ideas. That’s probably a relief to Republicans, who question Romney’s commitment to the cause, but it also provides openings to Democrats, as the Ryan budget could be a potent political weapon in the fall, and not just at the top of the ticket.” Romney is looking for a partner to clean up this mess, not just a running mate. In this video Sabato analyzes the ramifications of this development and answer questions regarding the pick.
