    A closeted veep for McCain?

    Posted by: Chris

    Foleycrist With John McCain pretty much wrapping up to GOP nomination, speculation moves to whom he might select as his running mate. This from yesterday's New York Times:

    Quite a few of the names being bandied about are those of politicians in their 40s and 50s, including Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, 47; Gov. Charlie Crist of Florida, 51, whose well-timed endorsement helped Mr. McCain win the crucial swing-state’s primary; Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina, 47; and Rob Portman, 52, a former Ohio congressman and director of the Office of Management and Budget.

    Well you can strike one name off that list: Charlie Crist. The briefly-married, longtime bachelor governor of Florida has too many lingering questions about whether he's gay -- from a fellow politician's recollection of a personal admission from Crist years earlier, to (unproven) stories about a young male activist being seduced at a party.

    Expect McCain to stay as far away as possible from that kind of sideshow.

      I've had to chuckle hearing pundits report on the V.P. choices Senator McCain is considering. In addition to Charlie Crist - mentioned above, I've heard that former Congressman Jack Kemp as well as current Senator Lindsey Graham also on the list.

      The most interesting part about these names, if you can believe the rumors, is that all three men represent not the right wing or left wing of the Republican Party, but rather what might better be called "the gay wing of the Republican Party."
