Sometimes when picking a running mate, safe is sexy.
While “sexy” picks like Marco Rubio or New Jersey Governor Chris Christie grab headlines, they run the risk of overshadowing the dubiously popular Mitt Romney.
Trust me, it is not a good thing to have the Vice President overshadow the President.
Unfortunately, a presidential run may also be cursed, if one doesn’t pick the “sexy” candidate there could be a letdown among supporters because your chosen candidate fails to rally the base.
Oh the perils of picking a vice president!
