A headline like that may seem innocuous enough, but amid the fevered speculation about whom John McCain will select as a vice presidential running mate, maybe it’s a tea leaf. Or maybe not.
Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, in Denver as an unofficial Republican observer during the Democratic National Convention, has canceled several TV interviews that were scheduled for this afternoon, said a Republican spokesman.
Pawlenty said his travel plans — he is scheduled to be at the Minnesota State Fair on Friday — remain unchanged.
The governor, of course, has long been said to be on McCain’s list of potential veep picks.
Reports have said McCain may attend a rally with his running mate Friday in Dayton, Ohio.
