    I'm hoping he'll surprise everyone (except me,of course) and choose Fred Thompson as Vice-President.Lots of Republicans are rooting for Gov.Romney.It better not be Ridge or Leiberman (although I like him personally,aside from a lot of his political views).

    The answer to my question will be answered soon enogh by JM.Then all of this will have amounted to useless speculation on my part.Does anyone else want to join me in some useless speculation?Or will this be one of those dead threads having no replies?

    Tim Pawlenty is the man, IMO.

    Mike Huckabee,even though I don't care for him. Huck would be a good counter to Obama in the last stages of the campaign.

    Conservatives upset over abortion rights VP contenders

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Speculation that Sen. John McCain is considering two men who support abortion rights as a running mate has sparked a backlash among social conservatives, including radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh.

    Limbaugh warned on his radio show Tuesday that McCain would ensure the GOP's defeat if he tapped either Tom Ridge, a former Pennsylvania governor and homeland security secretary, or Sen. Joseph Lieberman, an Connecticut Independent who was the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee. Both Ridge and Lieberman support abortion rights.

    One Republican insider said that McCain campaign manager Rick Davis has called several state party chairs and indicated Ridge will be the Republican vice presidential pick this cycle.

    Personally, I think that it will be Governor Pawlenty.

    I hope he picks Lieberman; I think it weakens his overall campaign.
