Mitt Romney remained tight-lipped about his vice presidential pick in a taped interview with NBC, part of which was aired Thursday on Nightly News with Brian Williams. But he did drop one small hint.
“I don't think I have anything for you on the VP running mate,” Romney said. “Other than I certainly expect to have a person that has a strength of character, a vision for the country that adds something to the political discourse about the direction of the country.”
Though it’s not much, Romney’s answer could point to Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., whose budget plan has become a rallying cry for conservative intellectuals and has greatly influenced the fiscal side of his party’s platform.
The rest of White House correspondent Chuck Todd’s interview with Romney will be used for a documentary that will air on MSNBC on Aug. 24.
