Helicopters buzzing overhead, satellite dishes sticking up in the air, neighbors stopping to ask -- "Is it him?"

We don't know yet.

Pawlenty up to 80% on Intrade, Romney down to 10%. I knew McCain would probably screw this pick up. Pawlenty is a lightweight.

Did you click on the chart to enlarge it? Romney was up big-time today. He closed more than three times higher price than Pawlenty.

The internal polls showed Romney the best vote getter of all.
If McCain doesn’t pick the best vote getter, he will commit political suicide. Another Gerald Ford, Bob Dole and the elder Bush...

Pawlenty’s got strengths too. He’s not an exciting choice, but he’s reasonably conservative and doesn’t carry Romney’s “anti-McCain” baggage from the primaries.

I'm looking at the current price on the Intrade website. I guess trading is still open after hours.

I've been watching Intrade all day...it's fascinating. Mitt was up to 70 and Tim was in the 20’s most of the day. When it was announced that Tim cancelled his interviews, they both went to 50. After an hour it went back to 60-70 for Mitt, 20-30 for Tim. Now it's reversed. Does this trading go 24/7?

“We’re so screwed if it’s not Romney.”

Romney’s mistake was in letting McCain forget the number of Cindy’s real estate investments.

It’s nuts!

Anyway, Obama must be stopped from becoming POTUS, and McCain, warts and all, is the only man who can stop him.

Pawlenty needs a crash course in public speaking. If his weakness is boring delivery, that can be remedied.

I think that upper midwest is in play. The blue-collar Democrats, like my dad, never liked Obama. They are ready to be courted by McCain-Pawlenty.

As a Minnesota Resident I am not disappointed. For the most part, he is reasonably conservative, doesnt have have the baggage of flippflopping and attacking McCain. We still have the experience issue because he’s run the state for 6 years, and I’m not sure how he’ll do in the debates but i dont think he is a lightweight. I’ve met him at the state fair before and he’s really a great and well spoken guy. Pluss he’s taken a hard line on taxes.

Just saying.

“What do you mean reasonable conservative?”

Basically, Pawlenty is a McCain-ite conservative. I (being a Minnesotan) was impressed with his singular devotion to “no new taxes,” that is, until he compromised on a cigarrette “fee.” Given that he rules over a state where the press cries over the privation of budget cuts in years when there is a budget surplus, we have to give him credit. Or, we don’t have to give him credit, since the rest of his time he spends as a burgeoning environmentalist

I'm not a Pawlenty fan (just to get that out of the way) - but I just don't understand the enthusiasm for Romney hereabouts. Seriously.

I understood when he became the only Stop-McCain candidate left standing. But beyond that?

From Red State:
A source close to the campaign now confirms for me that it "more likely than not" is Pawlenty. He does, however, caution me that the campaign does not actually want to leak tonight lest the Obama camp get too much of a chance to play the victim card with a sympathetic media.

Pawlenty......wow, strategically I dont know how great of a choice this is. I would have thought one of the women would have been a better choice. Both would have been pleasing to conservatives, and would have grabbed some of the Dem female vote.

I dont know anything bad about Pawlenty. Hell, I may like him more than McCain once we get to know him, he sounds like a decent conservative. But my first impression is that the McCain camp said the pick would be “surprising”. Unless McCain is pulling a big fake, I would say this is the least surprising, or more correctly least exciting choice he could have made.
