Pawlenty again mentioned as possible VP

Conservative pundit David Brooks in today’s New York Times muses over possible vice-presidential picks and comes out strongly for John McCain to select Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty—a Minnesota lawyer, so he has a rightful place on our blog. Brooks says, “Pawlenty, the governor of Minnesota, is one of the G.O.P.’s leading and most likable modernizers. The son of a truck driver (his mother died when he was 16), he is the godfather of Sam’s Club conservatism, the effort to reconnect the party to the needs of the working class. Pawlenty could help McCain play the Theodore Roosevelt-style role — reforming the nation’s institutions to fit a new century and epoch.”

Not widely reported; but Pawlenty's pastor is current head of the NAE. This would be a very interesting contrast to the voters to Obama's pastor.
