Photographs of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) from a composite picture is seen at the Delta Tau Delta house at Miami University in Oxford, August 15, 2012. During a 2009 commencement speech Ryan gave at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he graduated in 1992, he mentioned his economics professor, Hart. "He provided me with much more than just an education in economics," Ryan said. "He provided a vision quest in my mind to improve the economy of our nation." When Ryan went to Oxford in 2009, Hart says he tried to persuade his former student to run for president. He recalls Ryan saying no, that he did not want to leave his three young children to campaign for two years. Picture taken August 15, 2012.
