Rep. Paul Ryan on Tuesday was the third Republican with vice-presidential buzz to speak at the Reagan library this election season. But his speech had a different purpose.
Walking to the podium with Nancy Reagan in the shrine devoted to President Reagan is a passage recently taken by two other Republican superstars who garnered presidential (and then vice presidential) buzz: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida.
(However, Representative Ryan didn't get the full treatment: Mrs. Reagan stayed at home for health reasons.)
