Not picking Portman could cost Romney

(Continued)

This is one where the former Massachusetts Gov. Romney would have been better off following the lead of the Massachusetts presidential nominee who won (Kennedy) and not the one who lost (Dukakis).

Like Kennedy, Romney is a good looking, rich guy from a large, influential and politically active family. They both had to deal with questions about their religious backgrounds and how it would shape their presidencies.

They differ in party and ideology but on picking a Vice President, this is one time where Republicans might say, “Governor Romney, we wish you were more like Jack Kennedy.”
