The Paul Ryan PowerPoint Experience

In a bid to reclaim his wonky reputation, Ryan unveils a chart-laden slide show on the campaign trail.

CANTON, Ohio -- As he campaigns for the Romney ticket, GOP vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan has started lecturing audiences with a PowerPoint presentation. It's an attempt to reclaim his wonky reputation in the wake of Republican complaints that the congressman's deployment as a second-fiddle attack dog, the traditional running-mate role, was hurting both Ryan's reputation and the Romney campaign.

So what's in the PowerPoint? Will it be enough to bring back the old Paul Ryan? I got a copy of the slides -- take a look.
