Krusty Konservative: Fire up the Mitt Mobile?

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

Mark Halperin notes that two Republican sources say that McCain has settled on Mitt Romney to be his Vice President pick, but no offer has been extended. There are plenty of advantages that Romney brings to the ticket, but most notably is his ability to raise money. Unlike any other potential candidate only Romney and Rudy Giuliani have a nation wide fundraising apparatus, but Romney's network is probably more prone to not give unless he's on the ticket. Rudy's backers are probably pretty happy with McCain as the nominee. Throughout the Republican caucuses and primaries, there has been a constant reminder of 1976. Many conservatives are not engaged in the McCain effort and believe that Republicans nominated the wrong guy. Conservatives are looking to the convention to see who will give the Reagan 76 speech, would it be Bobby Jindal, Mike Huckabee or Mitt Romney.
