McCain is expected to announce his VP running mate today. The three oft cited candidates are Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty and Joe Lieberman. Lieberman would solidify McCain’s contention that HE is the candidate for change. I wasn’t a fan of Lieberman when he ran as VP on the Dem ticket but his support for the Iraq surge to the dismay of his party-and eventual reason to leave it for independent status-not only proved the correct decision but demonstrated his will to do what’s right but not necessarily politically correct. If you contend you reach across party lines, Senator McCain, now’s your chance to show it. My prediction is that he picks Romney, who probably better serves his political purpose. Two presidential candidates talk of centrist policies but contiue on thier partisan paths.
