Sounds like we're getting close to announcements . . .
These are probably worth less than 2 cents . . . but here it goes.
Obama should/will pick Sen. Joe Biden, for his experience, his foreign policy gravitas, his blue-collar Scranton, Pa. roots, his ability to attack and debate, the likability/respect he commands with independents, his gray hair.
McCain should pick Former Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge, for his personal comfort level with him, because he looks/sounds good on TV, to be able to put Pennsylvania in play, to further enhance his own foreign policy/national security credentials, to highlight his independent streak.
McCain will pick Gov. Tim Pawlenty. He's young, from a Midwest battleground state, safe with the base and acceptable with the other G.O.P. planks. He could also help connect on economic issues. And oh yeah, he got rid of his mullet.
So who else is willing to put it on the line?
