Live video chat: What does Paul Ryan mean for U.S., Led Zeppelin?
Mitt Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate has raised a lot of conversation and questions. Your Politics Now team at the L.A. Times -- including Maeve Reston and Robin Abcarian -- will clear aside some of the clutter with a chat today at noon PDT. Among the topics to be discussed:
-- How has the candidacy of the 42-year-old congressman played in its first 48 hours?
-- Should Team Romney worry about an initial poll showing a plurality of voters unimpressed with his No. 2?
-- Pundits are saying the Ryan selection has turned 2012 into a “base” election for Republicans. What does that mean?
-- How would Ryan’s budget and Medicare proposals play out for average Americans, if they were to become the law of the land?
-- And what about Paul Ryan’s relationships with bow hunting? Ayn Rand? Ab crunches? And Led Zeppelin?
Join Reston, Abcarian and your blog host, Jim Rainey, hanging out at noon at Politics Now.
