On Morning Joe today, Tom Brokaw said the Paul Ryan pick brought "clarity" to the debate, and, perhaps, even Wisconsin.
"I do think it changed the game, and I think from a very clinical point of view, it was the right thing for him to make.
It clarified a lot of things. You've got a young guy who is very popular with his base. He comes from Wisconsin, which is a state that might now be in play.... and there's a certain amount of clarity about what we're going to debate."
