Surprising many Republican insiders, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is at the top of the vice presidential prospect list for John McCain. But lack of personal chemistry could derail the pick.
“Romney as favorite” is the hot buzz in Republican circles, and top party advisers said the case is compelling.
Campaign insiders say McCain plans to name his running mate very shortly after Barack Obama does, as part of what one campaign planner called a “bounce-mitigation strategy.”
I can’t think of anyone who will better fit in the “Straight Talk Express” than the transparently phony Mittens. Plus, we will get to read unlimited numbers of syrupy paeans to his greatness from Hugh Hewitt and K-Lo. Please let this phony hack be McCain’s choice. Please.
