Rendell On Being VP: "It Would Take So Long To Vet Me"

Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell (D) said Monday that he is 'absolutely not' being vetted as a running mate for Barack Obama, joking that "it would take so long to vet me...it would extend far past the convention."

Rendell added though that he has not heard of any potential Obama veep going through the vetting process.

"It hasn't happened with me, and I don't know any Democrat who's gone through that process, that seven-, eight-hour interview process.
