Who do you think would best help Romney defeat the incumbent?

Jessie Jackson?
The more I learn about the political choices we have , the more I want to throw up. No one in office or trying to get into office make any since for this country anymore.

I do think Rice has a couple of drawbacks:
1) Tied to Bush
2) Her stance on abortion choice.

From another standpoint she's a smart cookie. Can you imagine her in a debate with Biden?

I like Condy Rice for V.P.. She's not as pro-choice as many make her out to be, and if you listen to her stance on the issue, she makes good sense. I think she would help the ticket greatly. Unfortunately, I don't think she will accept the nomination, but she is pretty fired up about this election.

Condi would be a good choice.  Ditto for Marco Rubio although he would probably draw too much attention to himself.

Personally, I find Condi to be a better choice.  She is a known quantity.  She is very capable and very non-controversial.  She is also going to support Mitt rather that draw all of the attention to herself.

I'm all for Rubio. He's young, fresh and a natural leader.

  I've got to agree(except for the JJ part! Whacko).  I honestly can't say.  Maybe later on when the VP nomination  business gets more serious.
  As far as Marco Rubio goes I feel he can be of much more help to this country as a Senator right now. And as far as Condalezza Rice goes and way the Democraps have a way of turning things around they'd probably get away with playing the race card.  It's a shame as she is WELL qualified.  BUT maybe it's all immaterial as I read today somewhere that she's not interested.
 
   Just IMHO of course.

Another Condalisa Rice vote here. She impresses me very much! Not afraid to go against the grain and sees straight through the bull! 

I am 26, work hard, got a good job as a Paramedic and this country scares the crap out of me. What happened to work ethic and being held responsible for your actions. Americas  people/youth are being enabled and it NOT okay! . Our country is creating its own worst enemy. Free hand outs are a dime a dozen. Everyone that is unemployed thinks they are to good to work a mediocre job. I guess I cant blame them when its more profitable to sit at home on the couch and collect unemployment! (What happened to pride)  And we wonder why their are not many products manufactured in the US any more. Between lazy workers and ridiculous insurance requirements makes its cheaper to have things made half way around the world and shipped here! 

Where do you start in fixing this mess? Turning America back into an industrious country with a work ethic second to none other. I got some suggestions but prolly a little to radical. 
Here is few for example drug test everyone receiving gov assistance. (I receive random drug tests at my job and once they get a job make them pay back for the drug test)
No more unemployment extensions. (Then ther will come a point that if you dont work you dont eat)
Tighten up on the abuse of disability. 

I could go on and on.
Sorry for my rant I truly do Love this country just dont want it to be turn into another ROME.

It's definitely not gonna be Condoleeza Rice.  Romney reiterated today that he is definitely gonna have a pro life VP.  I do love listening to her debate people, though.

I am a product of my environment. I am blessed to have hard working, God fearing, honest parents that thought me that nothing is comes free in life. I just had my first son and I intend to raise him the same. Teach him to get his hands dirty and make things happen. I just hope he is not a minority in this country.

 God help us.

I think Romney ought to go with a Hispanic.  He's never goin to gain any of the Black vote.  Nelson Mandela could run with Romney and they still wouldn't budge the Black vote. 
 
 
I think he has got a chance of pulling some of the Hispanic vote, if he uses his head.

"If at first you don't secede....try, try again." 

Hope the great state of Texas makes good on it's threat to secede. I'm moving in with Ed till I can get on my feet.
I'd be willing to be a paper boy in a FREE state.

Another vote for Rice here. The economy is a wreck, foreign policy is in shambles and the Democratic Party, with Obama in charge, wants to bankrupt the white middle class into oblivion. She will give the U.S. renewed respect on the world front. Something we sure as hell don't have now.

Pro-lifers are in the spot light? Roe vs. Wade is the law of the land, agree with it or not. Since 1973 the religious right has been fighting this to the tune of not even allowing stem cell research. Why the hell they should have much stake in the V.P. selection is preposterous.

If we could get em to switch up we'd have a better chance. Make Romney the veep. If Rice has half the intergrity she displays she has the rest of em combined put to shame. She puts em to shame in IQ already.

I'd vote Stanley McCrystal for pres. Already told his staff about how much Obama is an idiot, along with the rest of his cabin. And he IS a leader!

Rice would be a tremendous pick. She'd pull a few black votes no doubt but is smart as hell and has a ton of worldly experience. I agree with others that she simply won't take the job, even if offered on a silver platter.
 
My pick is Rubio or Bobby Jindal from Louisiana. That guy is a hellova leader and would get a some of the minority (not including blacks) votes i think. I was very impressed by how he handled the state's response to the BP oil disaster (when the feds and BaRAK! did next to nothing).

Condoleezza Rice would be a bad pick.  She is not well liked in the black community (and will not impact the black vote at all... she would fare no better than Alan Keyes), not well liked in the conservative community and she is NOT a powerhouse in foreign policy.  All her FP experience is with FSU, not Middle East.  She is smart, but many believe she comes off more arrogant than Obama in demeanor... which would not be good for a female candidate at this point in history.  I like her, think she is very smart, but she does not come off well in "public" situations and she has that "pro choice" albatross hanging on her neck.  I think Nikki Haley would be a better female choice.  
I believe Rubio is Constitutionally "unqualified". He is NOT a natural born citizen. Neither of his parents were U.S. citizens when he was born.  Being born in the country does NOT make you a "natural born citizen".  I can't support him, though I think he is a great Patriot, a great person...
Bobby Jindal... see above...
Alan West is a great Patriot, Warrior, Citizen... I believe he, too, may have the "Keyes curse"... too smart and outspoken for the dim masses...
I don't care for Christy... he is far more liberal than the media makes him out to be.  He has some good points, but not sure they are not outweighed by the bad.  I don't want to find out after he is in office how liberal he REALLY is...
Don't like Pawlenty.
Paul Ryan might be good...
