Speculation abounds on who Mitt Romney will choose to join his Republican ticket. The choice is not an easy one, and Romney is already faced with one significant problem—almost every household name that he could pick has clearly, repeatedly and emphatically stated that he/she is not interested. 

Tonight on Politics Nation, Rev. Al Sharpton pointed out that today is National Best Friends day, and broke down Mitt’s veepstake challenges. 

Jeb Bush, Condoleezza Rice, Mitch Daniels, Tim Pawlenty and even Marco Rubio have all denied interest, which leaves Romney with…Rob Portman. According to PredictWise, a forecasting website based on the wisdom of crowded betting markets, Portman currently leads the BFF pack, and Rubio is trailing eight points behind in runner up.
