News Cut: The vice presidential two-stepby Bob Collins, Minnesota Public Radio
Gov. Pawlenty has been a steadfast supporter of U.S. Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign thru the twists and turns that have led to McCain's emergence as the presumptive Republican nominee. Through the campaign, Pawlenty's name has been floated as a possible vice presidential candidate for McCain.
Typically, Pawlenty has been denying his interest in the job and dismissing the talk as hypothetical. Well, the talk heated up again this weekend when Pawlenty opened the door to the possibility, slightly.
Bob Collins writes Minnesota Public Radio's News Cut blog and he has been considering the Governor's delicate political dance.
