Weeks ago, I listed Paul Ryan as having moved up from somewhere in the second tier of my top eight or so choices for veep up to among my top four or five. I’ve been meaning to post this for days: Ryan has now moved up to second for me, right behind Chris Cox (who remains easily my first choice). This new series of proposals of his is just stunningly good. Ryan is incredibly impressive in person, very likeable, very bright, and a good speaker. He is from the very “gettable” state of Wisconsin. He might cut into Obama’s youth vote. And despite his own youth, he has nearly ten years of experience in Congress PLUS a serious public policy background before that, working for Jack Kemp and Bill Bennett at Empower America. He is worth a good, long look by Sen. McCain.
