Perry On Romney Veep Pick: ‘As Long As It’s Not Me, I’ll Be Cool’

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) on Thursday played down the importance of presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s running mate.  

“There are great and talented people out there, but vice presidential candidates are interesting choices that will probably only make two or three days worth of news, unless they make some huge gaffe,” Perry told CNN. “As long as it’s not me, I’ll be cool.”
