Two of the leading candidates to be John McCain's vice presidential pick — Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — appear to be out of the running, NBC News reported Friday.Oh pleeeaaasssseeee let him announce Joey as his pick. The two deserve each other.
Pawlenty has been told he won't be chosen by McCain, according to NBC's David Gregory. And Romney won't be at today's Dayton, Ohio, rally with McCain, NBC's Chuck Todd reported. Romney spent Thursday courting donors in California.
Earlier in the day, Pawlenty downplayed his chances.
Friday's developments raised the possibility that others, such as former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge or Democrat-turned-independent Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, could be named, or that McCain could choose a wild card candidate from any number of prospects.
All I can picture is Joey arriving at the McCain event in Fairfield a few months ago flashing his fingers in a peace sign to the crowds protesting the war. I think Joey needs to be brought into the sunshine so everyone can see the "wild and crazy guy" that he really is. Both will bomb Tehran at the drop of a hat.
