Who will be the Republican VP nominee?

Thursday, August 28, 2008 by Dave Winer.

Lots of speculation in the political blogosphere about the Republican VP. Supposedly McC has already made his choice, to be announced tomorrow morning. Who do you think he chose and why? Who would be good for Democrats.. Bad? Permalink to this paragraph

I think Romney would be his most powerful choice, I hope he chooses Lieberman -- I think he'd be the easiest to run against. I don't see too many Republicans going for him, and no one wants a traitor a heartbeat from the Presidency esp when the Presidential candidate is 72 and a cancer survivor. Permalink to this paragraph

That's what I think, what do you think?? Permalink to this paragraph

PS: Lieberman ran for the Democratic presidential nomination just 4 years ago. Permalink to this paragraph

Update: The AP all-but says McC has chosen Pawlenty. Permalink to this paragraph
