John McCain Prepares Weekend Powwow For Possible VP Picks:
IRVINE, California (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate John McCain will spend time this weekend with three politicians who have been mentioned prominently by Republicans as possible vice presidential running mates.
A McCain campaign official said on Wednesday McCain would host former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal at his ranch in Sedona, Arizona. A total of 10 couples were invited.
"It's a purely social weekend with friends, something he obviously likes to do from time to time," said the official.
Jindal is too inexperienced, the rumor mill says Crist has skeletons in his closet and Romney has made his interest clear. Mitt Romney polls very strong against other fantasy tickets and all signs point to a McCain/Romney ticket. Meanwhile, Obama's VP search begins.
