McCain likely to let Obama choose VP first


John McCain's extended circle is divided on whether he should announce his running mate in the immediate days ahead—but the Republican is more likely to wait for Barack Obama to announce his choice first, according to advisers.
McCain is making a very smart move here. He can counter any move by Barack that way. If he needs a woman to shore up support, boom there you go. If he needs a strong conservative to attract more of the conservatives boom, there you go.
I'm still holding out hope for Alaska's Governor, Sara Palin.

How LOW can Camp Obama GO vis a vis Sarah Palin!!! First, Obama Campaign operatives led by Alaska State Sen Hollis French dig up a frivolous ‘troopergate scandal’ and launch a biased ‘investigation’ endeavoring to bring Gov Palin down (which is already backfiring against the Dems bigtime). Next, Obama himself appropriates in his ‘energy’ speech — without crediting Palin — as being HIS issue Palin’s Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline accomplishment with Canada. And finally, the Obama Campaign even appropriates the PalinforVP’s McCain/Palin slogan, “New Energy for America”. (Of course, McCain can still continue to differentiate, as per his recent ad: “Don’t just HOPE for new energy, VOTE for new Energy!”)
