WASHINGTON - Republican presidential candidate John McCain spent a marathon day raising money on Monday, and it went well: after events in Virginia and Washington, D.C., the campaign and the Republican Party pulled in more than $2 million...
Finally, there was praise for his opponent-turned-supporter, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
Theres nobody who represents me better today than Mitt Romney, McCain said.
Are you listening, governor? That could be the sound of a vice presidential offer coming down the road

Better Mitt Romney as VP than Mike Huckabee!
I sure would like it if McCain would pick Romney. It would help to get me motivated on election day. Of course, I know there are other good candidates out there. As things stand right now I don’t know what I will do on election day. This is an odd situation.
Get Mitt. He’d be good.
Thankfully I doubt he’d tap the Huckster.
The Huckster is just a lying shyster. We really don't need another one like that. He's a socialist with humanistic religious views.

Same here. McPain turns me off.
Good evening, Mr. Bates! :-)
I second that YEAH............
I find Huckabee to be of dubious character. The guy seems like a put on. I don’t care that he says he is a preacher. As Reverend Wright proved, that title doesn’t mean a thing.
Those were indeed some very gracious words by Mr. McCain about Mr. Romney.
I like Mark Sanford but I have to admit that Mitt and McCain probably create a more dynamic mix. Mitt fills the criteria that McCain has set, that the VP at least generally supports his policies and represents the future of the Republican Party. I’d be happy with either.
Honestly and seriously, I can’t think of anyone but Mr. Romney as the VP. He’s one of the very, very few who’s shown he’s willing to step up and lead. Maybe Rudy, that’s it. But I don’t think Mr. Romney will be Mr. McCain’s VP pick. I think Mr. Romney’s job is raising money for he GOP with his new PAC.
Lets hope not. It'll be difficult enough for many conservatives to vote for a moderate like McCain, without tossing in a life long liberal like Romney as his running mate. A poor choice and a bad decision all around.
The Mittster rides again?
Sounds like it’s a setup for Mitt to be VP. No surprise here. Make it official NOW, get a message and run with it. The ‘Rats will be in disarray at least until August.
