John McCain Watch: VP Sweepstakes – Crist, Jindal and Romney? Part Two – With VP Poll

Mitt Romney, Charlie Crist and Bobby Jindal

Vice President contenders? Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, Florida Governor Charlie Crist and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal

The “purely social”get together of Senator and presumptive GOP Presidential nominee John McCain at his Sedona, Arizona ranch Saturday with GOP leaders has “nothing whatsoever to do with the vice presidential selection process” according to Charlie Black, a key McCain campaign strategist.


But, what is interesting is the emphasis (leak) now on Fox News that “other” perspective Vice President candidates have either ALREADY visited with McCain at the Hidden Valley Ranch, like Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty OR were invited this weekend and had other committments, like Mike Huckabee. Looks like the campaign was caught flat-footed on this “purely social” event.

Others mentioned to attend the Memorial Day weekend BBQ include:

  • Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina
  • Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas
  • Former e-Bay Chief Executive Meg Whitman
  • FedEx Corp. Chief Executive Frederick W. Smith

Ok, so maybe this is a “meet and greet’ and not a serious series of interviews. But, what better way to create some “BUZZ” over the Vice Presidential sweepstakes and at the same time begin the pundit vetting of potential candidates – all on the cheap of an Arizona BBQ grill.

So, Flap will go one step further and rip off this poll idea from Marc Ambinder except Flap will name names.

Vote for John McCain’s Vice President:

  1. Thursday, June 12-Miami, Florida-My wife and I have been longtime Democrats, but this is the first time in recent memory that we have considered crossing over to the Republican side in November. We don;t like either one of the presidential candidates. We feel that both Barack Obama and John McCain are wrong for this country. Obama is a bum and so is McCain. But, we would be willing to vote for McCain if he chose a vice-president that we could live with. Our favorite choice is Mike Huckabee, someone who appears to be genuinely honest and likable. We realize that Huckabee is trailing in the V.P. Sweepstakes and is unlikely to get picked by McCain. But, for us and for many former Hillary Clinton supporters, a McCain-Huckabee ticket would be just the thing to get us to make the switch. Otherwise, we will simply stay home and not vote in the general election.
