The Minnesota governor may be McCain's running mate.

Although there seems to be a last minute buzz bomb for former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, my sources tell me that Tim Pawlenty seems almost certain be McCain's running mate. Pawlenty is like a mini-me McCain, more of a balanced-budget guy than a tax cut guy. (Though he's vetoed tax increases as governor.) Plus he's a greenie. Pawlenty's also pro-life and has a working-class background. Expect him to be deployed to the Big Ten states—Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, and, of course, Minnesota.
