Barro makes the case for Chris Christie:

Putting Christie on the ticket would … give Romney the best of both worlds: increased credibility with conservatives without actually having to take policy stances that alienate moderates. A recent poll shows how that formula is working: Christie’s approval in New Jersey stands at 92 percent among Republicans, but he’s also picking up 64 percent of independents and even 30 percent of Democrats.

Other contenders the Dish has noted: Portman, Ryan, Rubio and McDonnell.
