Next, the choice appears to have involved no pandering. Rubio would have been seen as pandering to Latinos; some other choices would have seemed efforts to lock up swing States. (Herman Cain made this point on Fox News this morning.)

Paul Ryan is, without doubt, a solid conservative. Shores up the base. Comforts the Tea Party.
This may bring some of Scott Walker’s electoral success to the Romney campaign.
