Meet Tim Pawlenty


Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, often mentioned as a possible running mate for Republican presidential candidate John McCain, will be joining 10th CD GOP candidate Chris Hackett today for an an event at his HQ 23 Dallas Shopping Center on Rte 309 Dallas, PA 18612 at 12:30PM.

This is your chance to meet a possible VP nominee on the losing ticket who, if he's picked by McCain, will be a front runner for the Republican nomination the next time.

I like this quote from Pawlenty:

"Say what you will about Barack Obama," the Minnesota Republican told a conservative group, "people gravitate when you have something positive to say." He added that McCain has been positive as well.
"People want to follow hopeful, optimistic, civil, decent leaders," Pawlenty said in a speech to GOPAC, which helps recruit Republican candidates. "They don't want to follow some negative, scornful person."

Love your optimism Gort. What happens if McCain crosses the line like a true maverick and picks a democrat for his veep? What happens if he picks Alan Keyes? or god forbid, Hillary?
