For BJ.....

Interesting, but long shots.

My personal 'weirdness' scenario is for Romney to win the popular vote, while Obama wins the Electoral vote, but there is electoral weirdness in Ohio.

I want to see how the Court would revisit Gore v. Florida.

What would it take to make this magical event happen and what do we need to do to get a reality show on it produced?

I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

I think BJ would take Ryan in any position he can get him into.

You know Romney/Biden might be the best thing that could possibly happen to get liberals and conservatives talking again. Can you imagine the reelection campaign? If they wanted to get reelected they'd have to come up with a platform that would go across party lines as I can't see either of them turning in their red or blue colors.

One could hope.

Unfortunately, that re-election scenario wouldn't happen. Since the VP is chosen by the Presidential candidate, Romney would just tell Biden during the 2016 campaign: "Your services are no longer needed," and choose someone from his own party. Of course, he would follow that up with, "See, I do like to fire people."

I can't see that scenario playing out well for Romney. First, Romney is running as a uniter. So firing Biden would make Romney look bad to all independents right off the bat. Second, assuming Romney/Biden have a good first 4 years, I can't see people warming up to Romney trying to fix something that isn't broken. And if the next 4 years go bad then Romney won't win anyway.

I also couldn't see Biden leaving either. If their first term goes well enough and he leaves then Biden would be labeled as someone who puts party before country. If things go bad for the administration then Romney blames Biden as intentionally wrecking everything and points to his desertion as proof.

Besides it would kill the ratings for the reality show.

That was last week. I think you're running three flip-flops behind.
