Frank Rich on Piers Morgan: Romney Would Pick Paul Ryan If He Had Guts

By

Piers Morgan asked New York's own Frank Rich Wednesday night to step into Mitt Romney's brain and choose his veep. Rich wrote earlier that Romney seems to be determined to pick a white man even duller than he is, and will probably end up choosing Rob Portman or Tim Pawlenty. He told Morgan that "there is no right pick." But if Rich were running the show? "I think if he had guts, given that type of person, he should probably go for Paul Ryan. Because Paul Ryan — like him or not — is the intellectual of the conservative movement right now. The base loves him. He's certainly a presentable guy. And I think he's much more interesting than Pawlenty or Portman, who are two most talked about."
