Pawlenty vs. Romney

According to the New York Times, John McCain has chosen his vice president and will announce the pick Friday. Quoting the Times, which is allegedly quoting insiders, the top three under consideration are "Mitt Romney, Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and, possibly, Senator Joseph I. Lieberman".

You can essentially knock Lieberman off the list, he's not going to be chosen, so if the insiders are right, it's a race between Romney & Pawlenty. Interestingly enough, both of them are in Denver right now at the Democrat National Convention playing the role of attack dog for McCain... I guess that's not too much of a surprise.

As far as Romney goes. Romney = Obama is the White House and the next Supreme Court justice will be Bill Ayres.

Pawlenty on the other hand sounds like he might actually be a decent pick. According to this article by the Minnesota Independent, Pawlenty is at least solidly Pro Life.

From the article:
"Pawlenty’s political career before becoming governor included eight years in the Minnesota House. During that time, he championed the Women’s Right to Know Act, which mandated a 24-hour waiting period before undergoing an abortion. His advocacy on anti-abortion initiatives garnered him a 100 percent rating from the anti-abortion group Minnesota Citizen Concerned for Marriage."

I guess we'll figure out who it will be Friday.
