Mitt Romney in the frame for Vice Presidential nomination

Adam Higgins July 1, 2008

While Democratic eyes seem peeled solely on whether Barack Obama will name Hillary Clinton his Vice Presidential running mate for a so called “dream ticket,” one name keeps getting repeated over and over again in John McCain circles: Mitt Romney.

Queerty.com reports that Romney’s name is creeping up McCain’s list of potential running mates, the only potential spoiler, the site reports, is a clash of personalities.

Still, Politico.com reports that Romney has the potential to be a serious contender for the seat because of his ability to raise a lot of money, quickly, from former business partners and through the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter-Day Saints.

According to the Website, a McCain insider predicted Romney could raise up to $50 million (£36m) in two months.

Queerty.com posits that Romney would also be a score among conservative Republicans and faith based voters, suggesting its time for Democrats to remind Republicans of Romney’s flip-flop on gay rights.
