How about retired Gen. David Petraeus for vice president? He certainly would give the ticket foreign policy balance.
Paul Miller, writing at Foreign Policy magazine, makes a strong case for adding Petraeus to the ticket.
Petraeus has nearly universal name recognition and is one of the most well-respected figures in the country. A year ago only 11 percent of Americans had an unfavorable opinion of him, according to Gallup, half that of Christie. And as a non-partisan figure he has not been tarnished by the partisanship and mud-slinging of recent years. Additionally, Petraeus would bring foreign policy expertise to the ticket, balancing Romney's focus on economic issues. If Obama really intends to claim that his foreign policy accomplishments should earn voters' respect, there is no one in the country with more credibility than Petraeus to take Obama's argument apart.Vice President David Petraeus? | Shadow Government
