Tim Pawlenty Abruptly Cancels Media Interviews in Denver–VP?

I’m going to join in on the Veepstakes speculation here with something that someone pointed out to me.

Could McCain’s VP be Gov. Pawlenty?

An interesting article from Yahoo New has this to say:

Read it below the fold…

DENVER – Republican presidential candidate John McCain decided on a running mate early Thursday, and one top prospect, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, abruptly canceled numerous public appearances.

The Arizona senator will appear with his No. 2 at an Ohio rally on Friday, aides said, though they provided no details on McCain’s pick.

Without explanation, Pawlenty called off an Associated Press interview at the last minute, as well as other media interviews in Denver, site of the Democratic National Convention.

I don’t normally like to engage in this sort of speculation, but this does seem a little surprising and abrupt for Pawlenty to do something like this.

Other potential VP’s like Romney, Lieberman, and Ridge were also mentioned in the article, but there are no reports of them doing anything like what Pawlenty has just done.

So, what do you guys think? Will Pawlenty be the VP pick, and does this give it away?
