If the above seems like an odd question, consider this: Rep. Paul Ryan has been the Republican congressman from District I in Wisconsin for the past 14 years. He is now running for Vice-President on a Republican Party ticket topped by Mitt Romney. So you might think that since he naturally believes this ticket will win in November, he is giving up his congressman’s job to take part in the more important presidential race.
Right? Not right!
The man is still running for another term as a Wisconsin congressman. While also running for Vice-President. So you have to wonder. Is he hanging on to this backup because he doesn’t really believe Romney will win?
If you are in a relationship with someone who says he/she really believes in your relationship, but they won’t give up their present love interest just in case your relationship doesn’t work out, might you question whether this person is really committed to you in a major way?
Come on, Mr. Ryan. Commit! You want the country to take a plunge into a political future you freely admit will be dramatically different from the political present? You want the country to have that kind of political courage? Then step up, sir, and do the same with your own career.
