Which Candidate Will Rick Perry Select for his VP Running mate.

    

It seems that a lot of the candidates running in the Republican presidential primary have no chance. Why would they be running? My guess is they are trying to pull a Joe Biden-- positioning themselves as strong "brands" with solid national visibility that will make them attractive as the vice presidential running mate. 

Here's the list of candidates and their percentages in the Ames Iowa Straw poll:

Bachmann: 4,823 (28.5 percent)

Ron Paul: 4,671 (27.6 percent)

Pawlenty Votes: 2,293 (13.6 percent)

Santorum: Votes: 1,657 (9.8 percent)

Cain: Votes: 1,456 (8.6 percent)
 
 Romney: Votes: 567 (3.3 percent)
 
 Gingrich:   Votes: 385 (2.3 percent)

I think Rick Perry will blow away all of these candidates. If my assumption is correct, which of these would he pick for his vice presidential running mate, assuming Sarah Palin turns him down. (just kidding) 

Santorum and Romney might help bring in blue northern states. 

Bachmann will draw women, Cain could draw blacks. Paul could draw Libertarians. Pawlenty could draw moderates. 
Gingrich could draw philanderers and right wing academic novelists...

What's your take. Please comment on who you voted on and why. 

Bachmann
Paul
Pawlenty
Santorum
Cain
Gingrich
other; please explain who, why

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
