My guess is that he will pick PORTMAN as his VP candidate. If he does so, that MIGHT give him Ohio, and we all know that OH is very important in the scheme of elections. (OH, PA, FL, VA, NC and a few other states are the ones that decide presidential races after all).
---Really that is his only shot... Portman as the VP candidate and maybe Romney gets Ohio. And assuming he can get FL and OH with Obama taking PA, then he does have a shot.
But in the end, I think Obama will win. D@mn, NUCC and others will have to be pissed off that Obama is going to get another 4 dang years in the white house! ---Doesn't matter really... Not as if Mitt Romney would know what the hell he was doing once in office either. USA is headed down the wrong path either way.
So my money is on Portman as the VP candidate at 4 to 1 odds, then I have decided to bet on Obama, not Romney, for the presidential win at near 2 to 1 odds. (8 to 1 payout if I get it all right, 500.00 put in will be 4,000.00 in the end.)
Romney/Portman, then Obama to defeat that combo. That is my prediction. Hey, if all the choices suck, and you can't do anything about it, then might as well make $$$$$ off of it. Nothing else one can do for now. -- PS. Hillary Clinton 2016 still on the plans as well.
