Open Thread – Romney picks Ryan: What happens to the biggest showboat when the big show moves on?

It looks like Romney picked the steak over the sizzle. Despite a hot spike of Christie chatter over the last 48 hours, it’s Ryan and not Christie who got the call, with the official announcement expected to come Saturday morning.

Romney Ryan. Right-wing radicals that remind me of Reagan. The alliteration is going to be fun.

You can think of hundreds of reasons why when push came to shove Romney was never going to go with Christie, despite Christie’s service as attack dog, which I think had the effect of making the uninspiring Romney actually look even weaker. Christie’s too big a showboat, so interested in pumping his own profile that it’s hard to imagine him agreeing to be responsible to Romney. He’s a risk. He’s Sarah Palin – more brain cells, but only marginally better judgement.

So what happens to the biggest showboat of all when the big show moves on? This is an Open Thread.
