There was a story in today’s Strib about TPaw’s failure to get the nod for veep.
If you want a real inside story of events surrounding McCain’s choice of Palin, Spot suggests that you read this:
Scene: Backstage at the Xcel Center during the Republican National Convention. Tim Pawlenty and John McCain find themselves standing next to each other as the little knot of people they were talking with drift away. There is an uncomfortable silence for a while, then the stilted beginning of a conversation.
High drama, indeed.
