It's funny that the Republicans spent most of 2008 deriding Obama as a "celebrity", and most of the last four years trying to groom one of their own. In the end, though, getting the "base" excited is not what wins elections.
Especially this one.
PS If Romney loses Florida over this pick -- and it's entirely possible -- people will look back on it as the biggest VP pick flub in history (yes, even worse than the moron from Alaska).
