Petraeus on McCain Short List?

Take these Vice Presidential guessing games however you want, but there's one very interesting name being floated.

Also curious is how John McCain is playing it coy as to when he'll actually announce it. Will he try and upstage The Messiah's Mile High coronation?
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain may announce his choice for a running mate earlier than expected, sources told FOX News on Monday.

McCain had previously said he would announce his vice presidential pick on Friday and would appear with that individual at a rally in Dayton, Ohio, following the announcement. Friday is McCain’s 72nd birthday.

But sources close to McCain’s campaign told FOX News that his decision may come sooner than that — possibly on Thursday, when Barack Obama accepts the Democratic nomination at Invesco field in Denver, Colo.

McCain campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds diminished the news.

“I wouldn’t much weight into reports that there are windows of possibility,” he said.

Several names have come up repeatedly as McCain’s possible running mate, including former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge and, perhaps, Democrat-turned-independent Joe Lieberman of Connecticut. Also named is Gen. David Petraeus, the incoming head of Central Command.
Seems the left is preemptively trying to sow a little discord between Petraeus and McCain, which is pretty laughable considering their scurrilous attack on Petraeus last year with the infamous General Betray Us ad that blew up in their faces.
