As Washington begins one of its favourite guessing games, the Arizona senator has refused to divulge any names. But aides have admitted that Tom Pawlenty's will be near the top of the shortlist.

Aged 47, the Minnesota governor will provide a youthful contrast to the 71-year-old war veteran, and is only a year older than Barack Obama, the Illinois senator who is the narrow Democrat favourite.

Other names in the mix include South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford and Florida Governor Charlie Crist, whose support for Mr McCain helped secure early primary victories in their respective states.

With the Democrats set to field the first female or black White House nominee, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison has emerged as a possibility, along with Bobby Jindal, who last year became the first Asian American to win a governorship, in Louisiana.

If anything, McCain needs a bigger name than that.

Why on earth do this before you get the nomination?

If Ronald Reagan had not done that in ‘76 he likely would have been president instead of Carter.

“...along with Bobby Jindal,”

You have GOT to be kidding me.

This guy has enough experience to take over as Pres should something happen to McCain?

Talk about race hustling.

Thank you. The Republican convention is AFTER the Dems, we need to wait and seee who they pick as their team, BEFORE we put our team on the field.

I ain't saying one of them would be my choice, but somehow I get this weird suspicion that it will be someone in this photo.
