A Heart Beat Away

As early as today, Gov Tim Pawlenty will be chosen as Sen McCain's running mate revealing the biggest unkept secret of this presidential election cycle. To wit:
Take this for what it's worth--and it may not be much--but a source well-connected in Minnesota politics (and in a position to know) is pretty sure Tim Pawlenty has pulled out of one or two events scheduled there for tomorrow. Assuming that's right, I guess it could mean any number of things: 1.) There was some random, non-veepstakes-related conflict that forced the change of schedule. 2.) McCain or his vetters intend to meet with Pawlenty tomorrow, possibly somewhere outside Minnesota. 3.) McCain intends to announce his veep pick tomorrow and has asked several short-listers to clear their schedules. 4.) McCain intends to announce Pawlenty as his running mate tomorrow.
And then we have the other TNR:
A source tells me that Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty is John McCain's choice, and that the announcement is coming very soon.
Youth and exuberance -vs- age and treachery, all on the same ticket.
