itt Romney went with Paul Ryan as his running mate, but he's putting several other short-listers in the veepstakes to work at the Republican National Convention later this month. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will deliver the coveted keynote address. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a Tea Party favorite once rumored to be a likely vice presidential candidate, will introduce Romney when he delivers his acceptance speech on the convention's closing night, according to Fox News. The keynote speech is considered the highest profile spot — Barack Obama, then a state senator, delivered one for the Democrats in 2004, and four years later he was sworn in as president.
