One day after getting into the race, Ralph Nader picked his VP. McCain has been in the campaign for President for like a year and has been the presumptive nominee for about a month now. (But don’t tell Huckabee)
Reuters published a story on McCain’s VP pick. The story talks about him picking someone young like Govs. Charlie Crist of Florida or Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota. The youth of these candidates would eliminate the talk about McCAin’s old age of 71. The story goes on to talk about former Sec. of State, Colin Powell. That would be a great pick: moderate, helped Bush go to war, but kind of took it back, but strengthens national security stuff. However, Powell doesn’t have any economic background and McCain really needs that.
The story also mentions Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Hmmm. Not sure what kind of voters McCain would be looking for with Graham, but I don’t think they typically vote for the Republicans.
If the press are writing about a VP pick, does it mean that it’s on the way?
