Gov. Pawlenty was on Hannity and Colmes last night to talk about John McCain's chances. He was also asked about being a potential running mate:
"I have never discussed it with Senator McCain, and Senator McCain's confirmed publicly he hasn't discussed it with anybody else. Now that he's got the nomination, I'm sure he'll put the process in place to vet candidates.
But know that he'll have dozens and dozens and dozens of fantastic candidates to consider. And for anybody to say there's one or two or five people who are going to be it, it's just pure and unadulterated speculation at this point."
Pawlenty was also asked about immigration and Jesse Ventura.
