Remember former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty from his Republican presidential campaign? As sharp as he was at promoting his own candidacy, he just might be even better at promoting the candidacy of his new BFF Mitt Romney. So good that Mitt seems inclined to choose him as his vice presidential nominee.
Why? Romney figures he has been doing so well that his selection for vice president should be guided by "first, do no harm". Lots of Republicans thought Florida Senator Marco Rubio might be Romney's choice, but rumours swirled recently that Rubio wasn't even being vetted, rumours that later had to be denied by Romney's campaign.
Tim Pawlenty: Great idea, doesn't hurt any, bores us to tears, or too early to say?
