Mitt Tops the Short List?

I subscribe to the Evans-Novak Political Report through Human Events. About once a week, I get a nice little newsletter from Robert Novak that basically covers some news and rumors from the political world. Robert Novak has been doing this for a long time, and has been a key factor reporting and many of the bigger political developments during that time frame. So its safe to assume he gets fairly reliable information.

Anyway, something that caught my eye in this week's newsletter was this passage:

Will McCain name a vice presidential candidate in mid-July to step up fund-raising before the national convention, or will he wait until Democrats make their choice in late August? A rumor running through the political community now puts former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the lead for VP. But Romney has many critics in the McCain inner circle, and we don’t think the decision has been made.

Now we all had our opinions on Mitt Romney during the primary. Most of them weren't good. But Mitt does have his advantages. His economic know-how and the potential for him to deliver Michigan and Nevada could be huge. There are also negatives, mainly the perceived lack of authenticity that helped to torpedo his campaign.

I'm going to post this on all the blogs I contribute to, because this could be a huge deal if true and could be a very interesting topic of discussion.
