T-Paw makes Veep shortlist

Chris Cillizza has assembled

a list

of potential vice president nominees. Gov. Tim Pawlenty, long viewed as a possible running mate for John McCain, makes the cut. Here's Cillizza's take:

Tim Pawlenty: Two terms as governor of a Midwestern swing state (Minnesota) provide a compelling argument for Pawlenty. Given their problems in the Northeast and Southwest in recent election cycles, Republicans must find a way with him to stay competitive in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio in November.
