Romney-Ryan: Good news, bad news

This morning the news broke that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has chosen Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate.

Some progressives are celebrating this choice, figuring that Ryan's ultra-conservative fiscal policy will alienate a lot of voters. That's the good news.

The bad news: This choice will, at the same time, fire up the conservative base, including the Tea Party. And they vote. And they could win.

A Romney-Ryan win could devastate this nation, especially if the GOP retains control of the House.

So is this enough to motivate the disillusioned left?
