Last night, we examined the possibility of a Romney-Ryan ticket and what the dynamic would be between the two men if they teamed up together.

And today, the Wall Street Journal came out for that idea in a glowing editorial. It reads, in part:

The case for Mr. Ryan is that he best exemplifies the nature and stakes of this election. More than any other politician, the House Budget Chairman has defined those stakes well as a generational choice about the role of government...

Against the advice of every Beltway bedwetter, he has put entitlement reform at the center of the public agenda—before it becomes a crisis that requires savage cuts... He represents the GOP's new generation of reformers that includes such Governors as Louisiana's Bobby Jindal and New Jersey's Chris Christie.

As important, Mr. Ryan can make his case in a reasonable and unthreatening way. He doesn't get mad, or at least he doesn't show it. Like Reagan, he has a basic cheerfulness and Midwestern equanimity.

Has the Republican party found its new Reagan? It seems The Wall Street Journal's editorial board may think so.
