Veepstakes- Volume 4

No changes this month, but I should once again point out that I only consider the top four names on this list to be realistic options for McCain at this point:

1. Mitt Romney- former Massachusetts Governor and 2008 Presidential candidate (1)
2. Rob Portman- Former OMB Director and former Ohio Congressman (2)
3. Christopher Cox- SEC Chairman and former California Congressman (3)
4. Tim Pawlenty- Minnesota Governor (4)
5. Mark Sanford- South Carolina Governor (5)
6. Bob Riley- Alabama Governor (6)
7. J.C. Watts- former Oklahoma Congressman (7)
8. John Kasich- former Ohio Congressman (8)
9. Haley Barbour- Mississippi Governor (9)
10. Tom Ridge- former Pennsylvania Governor and former Secretary of Homeland Security (10)
