Veep Week

Speculation is heating up that we could have a vice president annoucement from Sen. Obama as soon as this Wednesday. three front runners are Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana, Gov. Tim Kaine of Virginia and Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware.

Sen. McCain has announced that he will name his running mate on August 29---his 72nd birthday. His choices are a little less obvious. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, and former Pennsylvania Governor and Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge are possibilities. Another interesting choice could be Sen. Joe Lieberman from Connecticut.

With Pennsylvania in the spotlight as a pivotal swing state I wouldn't be surprised if Tom Ridge makes it on the ticket. That may be McCain's only chance since all the evangelicals who make it a close race here seem to have lost their passion for this election.

I'm just wondering what happened to all the talk of women VPs? It doesn't matter that much to me, but I know it does to some. The media made it sound like both sides would seriously consider women, yet none of them are in the final list. Any explanations?
