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
