Agreed, but I just don't think he's in a position where he's loved enough by the conservatives to risk someone with those points. I would love it in the sense of it would make the race much more interesting with his VP pick than with some boring ass like Pawlenty or Portman, but I just don't see it happening. Still think he's pressured by not being far enough right. I think what Levin said "pick a damn conservative" rings more for him than the independent help.
If he was already a conservative champ I could see it, but when your opponents called you a Mass. moderate in the primaries I don't think you have the latitude to pull this off.
