I’ve said for months it was going to be Tim Pawlenty. It is the most obvious choice, though I think Eric Cantor would be the more exciting pick. I am confident, based on conversations, that the top three picks are Cantor, Pawlenty, and Romney.
Who do you think it is?
BTW: It does look like it is Pawlenty. I expect I won’t have to admit to Rebecca Roberts on XM’s POTUS 08 that I was wrong. For months she’s been asking me and for months I’ve been saying Pawlenty.
Why does it look like Pawlenty? Well, about an hour after McCain’s campaign confirmed they’d made the pick, Pawlenty started canceling events, even some he had confirmed this morning.
