There are a few other potential picks -- like Mike Huckabee or Sarah Palin -- for Mitt Romney's Vice Presidential running mate, but the Republican candidate will most likely pick one of the names listed below. Who do you think Romney will choose as his running mate?

NYDAILYNEWS.COM reports:
Kicking the vice presidential sweepstakes into overdrive, Mitt Romney Tuesday announced his running mate’s staff — but is still debating when to unveil his actual choice for No. 2 on the GOP ticket. Sources close to the Romney campaign told the Daily News the working plan has been to announce the pick after the Olympic Games, which begin next week and conclude Aug. 12 — two weeks before the Republican convention in Tampa.

    None of the above, though Portman is the best fit of these. I predict Thune:

    Not really Jindal he is not eligible he is not a NBC. But no "or other" option was offered.

    I would love Palin or Bachman. But I think he will pick John Kasich. Who is also a great choice.

    In fact, no Republican delegate is "bound" (required by law or party rules) to support Romney or any other particular candidate at Tampa

    * The Associated Press count, source for most news media, has consistently presented inflated, misleading and inaccurate figures. The "AP Delegate Tracker" (http://hosted.ap.org/interac... betrays a casual disregard for precision, e.g., with this clearly false statement: "Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney became the Republican party's presidential nominee by crossing the threshold of 1,144 delegates to the GOP national convention this summer." This is simply false.

    Edit: So you see, this is just a bunch of hipe. He can pick who he wants but he doesn't even know if he is the Nominee yet. We shall see after the Convention.

    I like Condoleeza but she keeps insisting she doesn't want it. Portman is too much like Romney and of other 3 I think Pawlenty is the best choice.

    You are wrong about the black and female vote. She's republican that served under Bush. That fact alone will not bring any new voters. Feminist won't voter for her. Blacks won't voter for her. Primarily because the GOP has not made ANY effort to diversify their constituency.

    You are right about her being an amazing public speaker and not wanting to be VP though.

    >>>and will get thee African American vote>>>

    I don't think so. Remember that Condi Rice would be an African American conservative going up against an African American liberal. Given that choice, most African Americans would vote for the latter.

    If Romney picks her, or anyone else who supports legalized abortion, then I will not go through with my plan to vote for Romney.

    Obviously I wouldn't vote for Obama either. I'd either find a suitable-to-me third-party candidate to vote for, or I would abstain from voting.

    Abstaining would be bad, but for me to enable the slaughter of unborn babies (by voting for any candidate who supports it) would be a grave sin. I ain't doing it.

    I agree with your pro life stance but you can't letting that be the only deciding issue. Let's say 3 choices for pres and all are pro choice, abstaining would essentially be a vote for Obama.

    On this list, I'm leaning to it being Ryan. It won't be Sarah Palin or Portman (my choice).

    However, I believe that Marco Rubio will be the pick. Has he dropped out the polls? I haven't seen that...why is he not listed?
