Paul Ryan was a Congressman at the age of 28. And now at the age of 42 he has been selected to be Mitt Romney's running mate. No wonder he calls himself a young gun.
And whatever else the Obama campaign throws at him over the next 3 months, no one will accuse the Congressman from Wisconsin, who adores hunting with a bow and catching catfish with his bare hands, of being bland.
For America's right-wing, Ryan is a dream-come-true - a real fiscal conservative who wants to do some serious budget cutting. That simple fact will shake up this Presidential race.
It excites the Tea Party faction of the Republican Party who want a bloated Washington cut down to size and it provides the Democrats with a clear target. So expect the political fireworks to begin.
This Presidential race has just taken shape and voters have a clear choice.
