Seems pretty clear now that John McCain is about to pick an outside the box contender for veep. At least if it’s true, as now appears to be confirmed that it’s not Pawlenty or Romney. Earlier in the week we picked up a supposedly good tip that Colin Powell was being actively vetted. The rumor got mentioned on CNN as well. But Powell’s spokesperson told us definitively it wasn’t true.
Late Update: ABC seems to have it confirmed that Sarah Palin is still in Alaska. And that’s a long plane ride unless they’re going to go supersonic from Achorage to Dayton.
Later Update: On second thought, the ABC report strikes me as soft.
