Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan will NEVER be a minor, forgettable public figure ever again!
He will now have Secret Service protection during the upcoming campaign, and will still need some protection after, due to the controversial nature of running for national office.
Every Vice Presidential loser remains a national figure, and is often thought of as a future Presidential candidate.
Witness Sarah Palin, John Edwards, Joe Lieberman, and the earlier Presidential candidacies of Jack Kemp, Lloyd Bentsen, and Bob Dole as evidence, and also the later candidacies for President of Sargent Shriver and Edmund Muskie as further proof!
And being only 42, and even rumored to have thought of running for President from the House of Representatives in this year’s race, face the facts—Paul Ryan will be a major player in the future of American politics!
And finally, Franklin D. Roosevelt lost the Vice Presidency in 1920 and became President in 1932!
