Larry Craig for VP

Rumors are flying out of the John McCain camp that a surprising and seemingly counterintuitive choice for the vice presidential running mate is imminent.

The theory being that if, as expected in November, after eight years of Bush incompetence the party's chances go into the toilet; Senator Craig is, among his party, the most well acquainted with the territory.
