A piece out from Robert Novak claims that sources within the McCain campaign are saying his choice for Vice President may be revealed this week. This would figure since it’s a way McCain could steal headlines from Obama’s world tour.
Story from Novak:
Sources close to Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign are suggesting he will reveal the name of his vice presidential selection this week while Sen. Barack Obama is getting the headlines on his foreign trip. The name of McCain’s running mate has not been disclosed, but Mitt Romney has led the speculation recently.
As of this moment, my money is on Romney. First, he’s quite well known thanks to his massively funded presidential run. Second, he would bring the economic credentials McCain sorely needs. The platform could be presented as a foreign policy/economic powerhouse of sorts.
However, Romney’s downfalls of course include his numerous alleged flip-flops on issues such as abortion. Furthermore his Mormon faith could once again come back into question with evangelical Christians.
Will keep this updated as details emerge…
Meanwhile McCain has been campaigning with Bush Sr:
More to come..
