A lot has been written about Ryan ever since he was picked as Romney’s running mate. I haven’t been able to read it all just yet, but I hope to do so in the next few days. It’s certainly going to be interesting to see how this election shapes up, and whether or not Ryan helps or hinders Romney’s current bid for the presidency.
