(WTVR) - We asked CBS 6 Political Analyst Dr. Bob Hollsworth if Paul Ryan was the right choice Mitt Romney's vice presidential candidate.

He believes that both parties will be satisfied with Ryan but for different reasons.

"Conservative Republican activists really like this because Ryan has been such an intellectual leader in attacking the budget deficit and attacking what they believe are the misguided priorities of Barack Obama," Hollsworth says.

"And at the same time, the Democrats actually love this choice as well because they believe the Ryan budget gives them an opportunity to attack Republicans on Medicare and social security - issues the democrats love to run on."
