Can you name the man in the picture? He may have a pretty important job soon-

Okay..This is Paul Ryan. Right now he is Congressman Paul Ryan (R) from Wisconsin. But after many months of speculation ( in less kind parlance it's called "guessing") Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has announced that Ryan will be his running mate in the upcoming election.

Romney , in introducing Ryan made a bit of a blooper when he told the crowd that Ryan would be, "the next president of the United States." Romney, realizing the gaffe, added, "Every now and then I make a mistake, but I did not make a mistake with this guy," Romney said. "He's going to be the next vice president of the United States."
