Is It Ryan? National Review Writers Think They've Got Some Pretty Big Clues

Updates: Two things. First, Drudge over-reads Costa. Drudge's headline says a Romney chartered plane is waiting for takeoff near Ryan's hometown in Wisconsin. That's not what Costa says -- just that it's a chartered plane.

Second, apparently Ryan is non-denying this story by telling people "But I'm on vacation next week." Or words to that effect. Well, that's not a very strong denial. And also, that vacation is part of the reason people suspect Ryan is the nominee. You know, good timing. Schedule is clear. No other commitments interfering with any new demands that might suddenly fall to him.

...

Geraghty explains how to know who's been selected as Veep.

2) The campaign plane will make an unexpected stop, or the campaign will charter a flight from a particular location to a campaign event in a swing state.

[Example:] Another rumor has a chartered plane from Alaska landing a while ago near Dayton, Ohio. If true, that could mean McCain’s selection could be an outside-the-box game-changer: picking Alaska’s first female governor, Sarah Palin, a 44-year-old mother of five and political maverick in her own right, who went against her state’s GOP establishment in recent years to drive a series of reforms through.

Now see Costa.

Take note, veep watchers: Earlier today, a charter plane took off in Boston, stopped in Chicago, then flew to the tiny airport in Janesville, Wis. Janesville, of course, is the hometown of Representative Paul Ryan, a top vice-presidential contender. According to a source on the ground, the plane is still in Wisconsin.

Tomorrow morning, Mitt Romney will visit the U.S.S. Wisconsin in Norfolk, Va. For what it’s worth, Ryan is scheduled to be on vacation in Colorado.

He's got a small update there which I won't quote because otherwise I'd've stolen the whole thing.

CakeGirl, were you giving us a hint?
