As Mitt Romney announces his selection of Paul Ryan for his VP candidate, several bloggers are celebrating, especially those who put on a full-court press for Rep. Ryan via the Twitter hashtag #GiveUsRyan.
To the extent that their campaign affected Mr. Romney’s decision, I salute their effort. I believe Mr. Ryan is a wise choice.
It’s one thing to add to the noise in the political echo chamber in the conservative blogosphere. It’s something else to move the result in a national election.
UPDATE—The Other McCain reports on a Romney/Ryan rally in Manassas, Virginia, and gives the impression that Mitt Romney is doing a better job of campaigning than the reporter’s distant cousin did in 2008.
