Pawlenty cancels appearances as veep announcement nears
Tim Pawlenty abruptly canceled several media appearances on behalf of John McCain today without explanation, reports the AP:
Pawlenty, in Denver to criticize Democrats on McCain's behalf, canceled without explanation an afternoon roundtable interview with the AP as well as other media interviews. Questioned about the vice presidential selection earlier, Pawlenty would only say that he is to be in Minnesota on Friday for the state fair. He had cautioned during a series of morning TV interviews that while speculation might be fun, "most of it turns out to be inaccurate."
Does it mean anything? Who knows. But according to others who may know something, expect an announcement tomorrow morning, or maybe even tonight. And keep your fingers crossed for that Biden-Pawlenty match-up.
