Paul Ryan = Al Gore

The year was 1992. Bill Clinton had taken a bruising as he clinched his party's presidential nomination. People were not sure just what he stood for - or in what direction he would take the country.

So Clinton chose Sen. Al Gore as his running mate - doubling down on the promise that their party was offering "a different kind of Democrat" to address the nation's economic ills.
The choice reinforced Clinton's image. It's that kind of choice that Mitt Romney has made in selecting Paul Ryan.
