South Dakota Senator John Thune commented on the potential of being offered to join the Romney ticket. Thune said:
“I don’t think you ever rule out or say no to opportunities to public service if you are really interested in making a difference for your country, you want to put your gifts and abilities to the highest and best use,” Thune told reporters following a town hall in the local firehouse here. But, he added, “I don’t expect that to happen but I don’t think you never say never when it comes to serving your country.”
Thune, at one point, had some buzz as a potential candidate in ’12. He’s still thought-of enough to have some speculation surrounding him to be VP, but he’s Romney-lite. Boring, telegenic, and would add zero geographical advantages to Mitt.
