McCain VP Announcement Imminent, Pawlenty Cancels All Appearances

Looks like we won't be waiting around until 3 am to get this announcement.
DENVER - Republican presidential candidate John McCain decided on a running mate early Thursday, and one top prospect, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, abruptly canceled numerous public appearances.

The Arizona senator will appear with his No. 2 at an Ohio rally on Friday, aides said, though they provided no details on who McCain had picked.

Without explanation, Pawlenty called off an Associated Press interview at the last minute, as well as other media interviews in Denver, site of the Democratic National Convention.

Others believed to be in contention for the No. 2 slot on the GOP ticket included former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who was meeting with donors throughout California, and Democrat-turned-independent Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, who was vacationing on New York's Long Island.
I can live with Pawlenty, but would prefer Romney.

Please, not Lieberman. Decent enough guy, but way too liberal.

Now, does it come tonight or do they wait for tomorrow's McCain appearance in Ohio? The media and Obamatons will have a hissyfit if it's tonight.
