"The Interview" on France24 - Paul Ryan's impact on Romney's campaign

"Romney is perceived to be a moderate; he went through a pretty bruising primary battle and ultimately he was successful. But there is still a lot of trepidation from people on the more conservative side of the party and he needs their support, even some of the swing states, to get through.  He needs the energy of the conservative wing of the party behind him.  So in picking Paul Ryan, he brings those people back to the table and that's very important for him."
