I like all three of those you name. Eric Cantor is at a disadvantage for never having served as a governor. If McCain's advisors are trying to keep Virginia in play, the only eligible past GOP governors I can think of are George Allen and Jim Gilmore. Gilmore is currently running to fill the retiring John Warner's Senate seat.

The thinking that a Pres. or VP has to be a Gov. which I see so much of on FR is outdated thinking.

Sort of the thinking that we should fight wars the way we did in WWII.

So many haven’t realized, we are in another mode, especially the war we are fighting, and the various candidates that see this are the one we need to look at.

The economy is important but they don’t make pockets in shrouds.
