Does anybody honestly believe that somebody who hasn’t even endorsed McCain yet will take his Veep spot? Because, as of right now, many of the things that Powell has said about the candidates hints at a quiet endorsement for Obama.

Still, Politico puts the meme out there…

Retired Gen. Colin Powell is among the potential running mates who have been considered by John McCain, campaign advisers told Politico.

Powell was among the possible vice presidential choices the Arizona Republican senator was thinking of when he said he would not rule out a supporter of abortion rights, a key adviser said.

Campaign officials say McCain has told them not to discuss the process.

Folks, this will not happen. Guaranteed.

Still, McCain has a chance to pick a truly groundbreaking Veep. Because if he picks somebody like Sarah Palin or Meg Whitman, he could pick up a sizable enough portion of those pissed off Hillary voters to make things very interesting.
