… right now say that McCain has chosen Pawlenty as his running mate. His Intrade stock is currently around 80% right now, and Romney is down at 15%.
I’m a little disappointed. Maybe I just don’t know Pawlenty well now (right now it seems like no one knows him). But it seems like he is a pretty low-key, undynamic politician. Romney brings some baggage, and it’s unfortunate that McCain laid into him a few times at the convention, but I don’t know anyone who has had a more enthusiastic following among Republicans.
McCain’s campaign has suffered from its slow pace and lack of vigor. Romney might have brought some excitement back to the campaign. I’m not sure Pawlenty, whoever he is, can.
