Larry King, still showing he has his fastball, was able to coax McCain just a bit tonight on veep, getting the GOP nominee to say that he has yet to make a decision and that his announcement timetable would not be driven by outside events:
KING: Senator, this is a fair question, I think. You don't have to tell us.
MCCAIN: Any question you give - any question you ask is fair, Larry.
KING: We go back a long way. I rode the bus with you. Do you know who it is?
MCCAIN: Oh, no, no, of course not, really.
KING: OK. Will you announce it before the Olympics? Isn't this a timing, strategic question?
MCCAIN: I don't know because again if I assume that, then where we are in the process, I can tell you that I will announce it just as soon as the process is completed but it won't be driven by any other factors, the Olympics, or any other. It will be strictly on when we can arrive at a conclusion and obviously it's tough because we have so many highly qualified individuals.
