Senator John McCain and Lousiana Governor Bobby Jindal
John McCain is set to meet with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal Wednesday, a move that is certain to increase speculation the Arizona senator is seriously considering the 37-year-old Republican for his running mate.
News of the meeting, first reported by the Washington Post, comes amid reports the McCain campaign has mulled the possibility of naming the vice presidential candidate later this week in an effort to steal the medial spotlight from Barack Obama’s trip overseas. Sources close to the Republican presidential candidate have indicated that scenario is one of several possibilities that have been recently discussed.
Flap admits Bobby Jindal would be a good choice. But, the best choice?
The timing is important and both Mitt Romney and Cindy McCain are out of the country. So, this rumour and speculation may be a Team McCain feint in order to dilute news of Obama’s foreign adventures.
A Thursday Vice President announcement or a “LEAK” today, however, would spin the weekend talk away from Obama and force his hand to name his choice for Vice President.
