Romney bus tour will include three VP hopefuls


Rob Portman, Paul Ryan, and Kelly Ayotte will be making joint appearances with Mitt Romney on his upcoming bus tour through the heartland.

The bus tour, "Every Town Counts", kicks off tomorrow in New Hampshire and will sweep through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, before finally wrapping up in one of Mitt Romney's home-states, Michigan.

Has there ever been this many high-profile Veep auditions?

It's like two straight months of dinners with your prospective in-laws. The pressure must be immense, but isn't that the point?

For the record, when I put my power rankings together in April, I had Portman at #2, Ayotte at #7, and Ryan at #12.
