West is a little too unpredictable for Romney to pick him... but I could have seen Ron Paul picking him.
im really glad he wasnt chosen as VP, that couldve wrecked his chances at becoming a president
Mavericks do not good presidents (or vice presidents) make. That's why Ron Paul could get no traction. He was left-leaning enough that FOX couldn't get behind him and right-learning enough that the rest of the liberal media wouldn't touch him -- both over bottom-line concerns by the left and right-wing media. This resulted in him effectively being black-balled by the media.
I want a three-party system, dangit.
