It is pretty much settled that Mitt Romney is going to be the Republican presidential nominee. But who will his running mate be? Various Republican governors, senators, and members of Congress have been suggested. When the question is put to any of these potential vice presidential candidates, they all give some variation of, “No, I’m not really looking for that job, but if Governor Romney were to ask me, I would have to give it serious consideration.” All of them are just playing hard to get.

It occurred to us to wonder, what if Romney chose someone out of left field. That’s what Senator McCain did in the last election. He chose the little-known and highly improbable running mate, the Governor of Alaska. What if Mitt asked Carl Perrin to be his running mate? When we put the question to Perrin, he evaded it, saying, “Romney wouldn’t choose me. I’m not even a Republican.”

“But what if,” we insisted. “After all, you were born in Massachusetts. You have that connection with Governor Romney.”

“That’s about the only thing we have in common. Why would Romney even want me on the ticket?”

“You could attract the geezer vote.”

“The geezer vote? Hmm. What is the salary for vice president?”
