All too often our panelists leave the set with one or two lingering thoughts they want to get out. Since they didn’t have a chance to say them on air, we wanted to jot them down below.
USA Today’s Susan Page says:
“So, talking about possible veeps for Mitt Romney, who would make for the most interesting fall debate with Joe Biden? Somebody like Biden who has a tendency to go off-message – although perhaps reporters want an unscripted exchange more than either campaign does.”
Roll Call’s David Drucker says:
“The competence argument can be tough to win on, a la Romney and his business experience. UNLESS you’re a challenger making the pitch against an incumbent who voters has fallen short on the key issue of the campaign. A problem for Obama if the economy and his poll numbers on the issue don’t improve.”
