McCain Praises Ryan As a "Bold Choice"

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Sunday compared GOP hopeful Mitt Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) for vice president to his 2008 pick of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R).

During an interview on Fox News, guest host John Roberts told McCain that there is “danger that the running mate may overshadow the actual candidate on some of the most important issues of the day.”

“I had that problem,” McCain laughed. “I don’t think that’s the case. I think that this is a team that understands the challenges that we face. They obviously have very good chemistry between the two of them. And Americans recognize that running mates are very important, but obviously it’s the top of the ticket that makes what the voters decide on as they enter the ballot booth.”

    McCain, you'd best hope there is absolutely nothing in common twixt Romney and Ryan and your "campaign" in 2008. They are probably cringing that you even opened your mouth.
