Folks who follow politics closely got caught up in a premature conversation last week about potential Republican vice presidential nominees.
The GOP convention in Tampa, Fla., will not affirm the presidential nominee’s selection for another six months. But Rand Paul’s name circulated as a possible way to shore up Mitt Romney’s support among conservatives.
It’s impossible to know if there was any substance to the talk. After all, politics are like icebergs: Much of it operates below the surface.
