Romney-Paul 2012: Approve or Disapprove?

Ron Paul supporters might cringe at the idea of a Mitt Romney-Ron Paul ticket in 2012, but would they pull the lever to vote for Paul as VP? Reason magazine, a libertarian editorial, explores the idea in the article. Reason writes:
From Romney’s perspective, there are naturally some downsides. Paul comes from a reliably Republican state, so unlike Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida or Rob Portman of Ohio—or Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell—he adds nothing to the Electoral College count. Unlike Rubio, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley or New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, he doesn’t diversify the ticket. And unlike New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie or Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, he lacks star power.
Paul's presence would give the ticket something it has lacked up to this point: spine.
