    I bet he's going, theres no way we can steal the media away, because he maybe picked a bad picked. Pawlenty thinks he could crush Biden? That is just wow

    McCain is a gentleman. Obama is a wannabe.

    Denise, you are mean. Many people do care who McCain chooses as VP. We need to begin to raise the level of political debate in this country.

    I guarantee it'll end up being 3:00am Saturday morning. He's going to follow Obama's leadership on this one.

    They really don't have to announce it anytime..not very exciting whoever it is. Unless they pull a rabit out of their hat, the current potentials are all going to be fun to targets!!

    Maybe McCain't thought it would be just a little too Rovian and would make him look worse than he already looks.

    Does it really matter ? It appears Obama may beat Ronald Regans record. The only hope JC has is to nominate Hillary.

    I'm sorry, but its because no one really cares all that much. Well, except for Sean Hannity, but who is counting him...

    This may be off topic but how can I get my hands on a CD with the songs from the DNC convention? That band is stellar.

    Whether you are Republican or Democrat ...whether we agree or disagree with Obama, we know this is a Historic night.

    So I'm glad to hear that McCain has decided to hold his VP pick in order to let Obama and America enjoy this moment in time.

    Tomorrow will be another day.

    The Reason why John McCain will not announce his running mate tonight because it is Obama night and because republicans are not bad .. John Mcain for president

    I hope he picks Mitt Romney

    You need to change your headline on your front page. McCain picks actor for VP? is a joke not phrased as a joke and is halfway down your ticker now. Misleading, particularly since Pawlenty isn't an actor.
