Tampa, Florida (CNN) — The 2012 GOP convention in Tampa has just ended. It is not too early, however, to draw a few conclusions.
My takeaways from this fine event are as follows:
Ann Romney added dimension to Mitt Romney. We see more in him now, through her eyes, if not our own.
Paul Ryan passed the first and most important test of a VP nominee, “Do no harm.” Ryan did not say he could see the deficit from his porch.
Ryan helps because he adds the prospect of action and reform to the ticket, helping lead them into the future. He is an agent of change. What Barack Obama had last time in a slogan, “hope and change,” Mitt Romney has now in a running mate.
