Now that Mitt Romney has all but sealed the deal as the Republican nominee (pick up the pace, Ron Paul), it's time that he start considering potential running mates. Mitt is certainly lacking in the image department, so we here at CollegeHumor thought we would suggest some possibilities that might balance out the GOP ticket this year.

Rep. Paul RyanPros:
– Chairman of the House Budget Committee; proposed a major budget plan
– From Janesville, Wisconsin; would capture the hearts of the Midwest
– Just a charming little gent

Cons:
– Two first names, can't trust him
– Kind of gives off otter vibes
– A better ticket would be Ron Paul/Paul Ryan, with a cabinet including Rand Paul, late artist Paul Rand, and actor Ron Perlman. I'll stop.
