With speculation rampant, our panelists predict who Mitt Romney will choose as his running mate.

PETER GROSZ, HOST:

Now, panel, what bold choice will Mitt Romney make when choosing his running mate? Luke Burbank?

LUKE BURBANK: Obviously that Austrian sex in the woods guy.

(LAUGHTER)

GROSZ: Paula Poundstone?

PAULA POUNDSTONE: Perry Como.

(LAUGHTER)

GROSZ: And Brian Babylon?

BRIAN BABYLON: Because he didn't finish his term, I'm going to go with Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.

(APPLAUSE)

CARL KASELL: Well, if Mitt Romney chooses any of those running mates, panel, we'll ask you about it on WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME!

GROSZ: Thank you Carl Kasell. Also thanks to Luke Burbank, Paula Poundstone, and Brian Babylon.

(APPLAUSE)

GROSZ: And thank you all for listening. I'm Peter Grosz, and we'll see you next week. Thank you so much.
