Romney's Made His Choice, And It's Definitely Pawlenty
Unless It's Jindal
Or Ryan

So, here's something.

itt Romney has already made his decision on who he’ll pick as his running mate, an announcement which could come this week, according to a New York Times report, and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who shares a close relationship with the Romney family and has become an energetic cheerleader for the GOP nominee, sits at the top of the list four years after he was passed over for the number two spot by John McCain....

JINDAL RISING: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will appear at a fundraiser with Mitt Romney today in Baton Rouge, fueling speculation about his vice presidential chances, the Washington Post’s Nia-Malika Henderson reported in a profile of the Louisiana governor.

....
“Asked recently about his vice-presidential prospects, Jindal offered the classic non-response. ‘We’re not going to speculate. I’ve said this for the last several weeks. We’re not speculating. We’re not commenting on that,’ he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” referring questions to the Romney campaign. ‘No disrespect to Joe Biden, nobody’s going to the voting booth and voting based on who’s vice president.’ Yet social conservatives are looking closely at Romney’s choice for signs that he wants to assuage their concerns about issues that are important to them, such as their opposition to abortion and gay rights. Jindal would fit that bill.”

John Thune just met with Romney's people in Boston to discuss the VP slot, too.

The short list is:

Ayotte, Jindal, Pawlenty, Portman, Ryan, Rubio and Thune. (A top Romney source already told Bob Costa it’s “not Condi” Rice.)

You know what would be hilarious? If he consulted Dick Cheney for advice on who to pick, then held a news conference, and announced, "After speaking with a dozen highly-qualified individuals, and speaking with former Vice President Dick Cheney about the demands of the job, I have decided that there is only one possible choice for Vice President: Dick Cheney."
