In a short excerpt of an interview on NBC this evening, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was asked, "What do you want your [running mate] selection to say about what kind of president you're going to be?"

The Republican presidential candidate replied, "I don't think I have anything for you on the VP running mate other than I certainly expect to have a person that has strength of character, vision for the country, that adds something to the political discourse about the direction of the country. I happen to believe this is a defining election for America, that we're going to be voting for what kind of America we're going to have."

Hmm. It's certainly vague, but could it be ... Romney-Ryan?
