Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio to his ticket at an event in Annapolis.  News of Haddaway-Riccio's role leaked out last week, but Tuesday was the first time the pair began selling themselves to the public. Craig cast Haddaway-Riccio as an able leader, an advocate for women and an environmental policy work who is capable of running the state herself. “The Lt.

Cover your eyes and hide the kids: A Republican is talking poverty. This has not been a pretty picture in the recent past. Who can forget then-South Carolina Lt.

And let's not even get into Mitt Romney's wholesale slander of the so-called "47 percent. " So one receives with a certain trepidation the news that Romney's running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, has issued a proposal aimed at curbing poverty.

One of the enduring misperceptions of American politics is that the vice presidency is a steppingstone to the presidency. Of the 47 men who have held the office, only four were elected to the Oval Office as sitting standbys: Adams, Jefferson, Van Buren and, 152 years later, the senior George Bush. And, of these, only Jefferson was given a second term. This bit of history has not discouraged the widespread impression that the individual "a heartbeat away" from the presidency has some kind of leg up on competitors for the office.
