Although I had hoped he would, I didn't think Mitt Romney would have the guts to pick seven-term Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan, Chairman of the House Budget Committee, as his running mate.
I've been watching and listening to Paul Ryan over the past year. When it comes to the frightening state of our national finances, Ryan knows the numbers inside and out. The more I've listened to him, the more aware I've become that he knows what he's doing.
Come November, maybe hope and change will at last become possible.
