In presidential campaigns, there's a tradition of allowing one's opponent a clear run on the night they accept their party's nomination. This time, McCain plans to air an ad congratulating Obama as he accepts the presidential nomination. Also for several hours we've been hearing rumors that the name of the Republican VP pick will be leaked just before tonight's speech. And McCain does indeed have to make a very tough choice...


Pawlenty (age 47) would make it impossible to argue about experience to lead. Lieberman or Ridge would mean selecting a pro-choice running mate (not to mention Lieberman ran with the Dems in '00). Romney is another multimillionaire with $30 million in residential real estate. So folks, who would you pick and how do you think this will play out?
