Mitt Romney seems to be at the top of the list when it comes to speculation over who John McCain will pick for his vice presidential running mate. I am not sure if that is what John McCain is thinking as much as the Romney people, trying to boost their guy, want us to think.
But if McCain picks Romney, it will make for an interesting health care debate this fall.
The Obama Health Plan is a virtual clone of the Massachusetts health law. Romney signed it and continues to support it–most recently a couple of weeks ago in an enthusiastic Wall Street Journal Op-Ed.
With Romney on the Republican ticket, how would McCain ever be able to criticize Obama’s proposal as just another Democratic government-run tax and spend health plan?
