With Mitt Romney ready to go as the GOP presidential nominee, the next order of business for Republicans is finding him a compelling running mate. If he's going to take on Obama, he needs someone dynamic and appealing to voters who aren't rich white men.

On Monday night's "Daily Show," however, Jon Stewart seemed to notice a lot of potential vice presidents giving a polite "no thank you." Several eligible and well-known figures within the party, including Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and Condoleezza Rice, have all made TV appearances where they seem -- how shall we put this? -- abjectly disinterested in a nomination.

In fact, it's turned into a media game of hot potato, with each politician lobbing the conversation back in someone else's direction.

Whether or not Romney is able to find Mr. Right is yet to be seen, but at the end of the day there's always Herman Cain.

Watch the full video above and let us know what you think in the comments.
