Nobody Asked Him

Gary Bauer offers some advice to those pressuring John McCain not to tap Mitt Romney as his VP, despite the fact that nobody asked him: “Former Republican presidential candidate Gary Bauer — now a McCain supporter — says if those social conservatives had asked for his advice, he would have recommended they find better ways to use their money. ‘I think it’s very hard to pressure a presidential candidate into either taking or rejecting a vice-presidential possibility,’ Bauer contends. ‘And quite frankly I would be worried about a presidential candidate who allowed public pressure to affect his or her decision, which is really one of the first important decisions that they make.'”
