Election update

July 23, 2008 | WASHINGTON -- Just as offices were closing up around the capital Monday night, a hot rumor suddenly had politicos and the press alike talking about someone who had slipped a bit from the news over the previous few days: John McCain.

For anyone who pays attention only to news of the actual, not hypothetical, variety, the rumor was that McCain would announce his vice presidential pick this week, swinging the spotlight back off Barack Obama's world tour and onto the Republican candidate.
Who's it gonna be?
That McCain was about to name his veep seemed unlikely -- for one, Cindy McCain is in Africa this week, unavailable for the obligatory photos of the candidates and their spouses, and one of the top contenders for the job, Mitt Romney, is also on vacation overseas.
Romney? Seriously?
