These are exciting political questions, eliciting no shortage of educated guesses and snarky tweets. But what's harder to find is real data. The public polling -- while not flawed -- ultimately just measures underlying partisanship or the hard ID of the different candidates.
With Speaker Paul Ryan's recent announcement of his hesitancy to support Donald Trump -- occurring just as we're entering Veepstakes season -- I find myself eager to play yenta, ready to make a perfect match between the Donald and a certain other Speaker of note.
Mitt Romney opened up several new lines of attack on his taxes this week -- such as labeling him "Mister Thirteen Percent" for his admitted tax rate. Even juicier is attacking what Mitt Romney would pay under Paul Ryan's budget plan.
As the speculation intensifies, and as all the punditry focuses on what is right for Romney, or for the Republicans, it is worthwhile to remember that the issue priorities and positions of his ultimate VP choice should really matter to us, too.
