Speculation continues to mount about Senator McCain and who'll pick for his VP Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty.
Has emerged as a top prospect according to the Minneapolis star Tribune.
McCain held a closed door fund raiser Tuesday where he praised Pawlenty.
And yesterday McCain publicly compliment of the governor at a news conference in Bethlehem Pennsylvania let's take a listen.
He's a great fine person he was reelected him one of the toughest.
Re election years and in the history of the Republican Party he comes from.
His father -- I'm pretty sure drove a truck he's.
Had great success story he's been able to work across CIO.
In Minnesota with the Democrats.
And joining us -- Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty governor how aria.
I'm good I'm doing very good thanks -- on this all right it's time for the tough questions no more no more docket here all you potential -- Are you being that it.
You know I have stopped engaging in this discussion because every time limits on somebody addresses and sets up more speculation the -- to the point.
I'm the co chair senator McCain's campaign and they've asked the campaigned.
From staff and others just not to talk about the VP so I'm kinda.
OK -- respect that request if you are offered the job will you take it.
I'm just not engaging in those discussion I've been asked a simple quiet -- Justin and but if the press that.
Presumptive nominee of your party says.
Governor we need you tomorrow I have the quinnipiac poll I'm sure you saw this earlier today.
Stay -- -- Minnesota Obama 46 McCain 44.
Your very popular governor.
And an important state that for the Republicans if they get taken off from the Democrats -- blue to red.
Would you take -- job.
And it just so much speculation about a most of that is inaccurate or off on various -- engines.
And so I'm -- not -- engage in the speculation I don't think it's helpful this is ultimately Senator McCain right call on the fact that he respects me and I respect him that's not news.
All right basically you say enemy Hannity leave me alone I'm not answer that question I had -- -- governor that's fair.
Let me ask this -- am I am I make in the case and I think that one of the reasons that Barack Obama so well received.
For example in Germany today is because he shares the values of of some European socialists.
On taxes are redistribution nationalizing health care on that belief in the United Nations people who were against the Iraq War.
You brought hours after Obama gives that speech he used that speech to raise campaign funds even those campaign said it wasn't -- campaign each.
Speech any scrapped a visit to wounded troops -- so mean to love governor.
I heard this segment that you had with Frank Luntz in comparing the speeches that the President Reagan gave -- president -- give there's one big distinction they were presidents and actually had done something and accomplish something.
To go have an unprecedented.
Campaign rally basically in Europe seems a little unusual to me and I agree with Frank -- the American people are angry and they're going to be even more angry when they realize.
Then Senator Obama doesn't want to have offshore drilling doesn't want to have a gas tax holiday.
Even if it back -- transportation -- -- Senator McCain wants to deal they're angry about gas prices and he represents himself we talk about his words are pretty gather pretty.
But the best sermons are not preached they're lived and he says -- I'm a uniter and he says in his ads -- on the uniter because I'm against a loose nukes.
Well who's in favor of loose -- John I mean how -- I really liked how much bold leadership is that.
Welcome to our show itself on finally worked with Dick Lugar -- -- -- -- -- one of his fine piece of legislation as a senator he also is not there.
Just as the candidates who -- -- -- innocent citizen he didn't go talk to the troops -- -- think lord be appropriate to go to a US military installation using campaign funds.
Which is why didn't take that particular trip.
So I just want to.
You know -- -- I'm now on the listen.
We we've been asking Senator Obama what is the one thing even one thing that you buck your party -- shown courage and boldness talk on something a national significance and now he's running an ad -- reached out and worked and to round up loose nukes that's good work.
But how is that trying to learn yourself how is that -- -- and I got through everybody's -- What -- -- to prove that you're controversial or against your party and ordered free please conservatives.
Well the point -- everybody's in favor of rounding up loose nukes of course and so how it how is that an Andy Anson Williams reached across party I'll.
Did something well and everybody was in favor of it I'm just curious as governor -- -- you don't answer the VP president question but if you do get that not would you actually still thought to liberals like me.
Well -- that we've.
Hello and all of that my voice and your money and now we -- it -- -- -- -- I understand how the air is -- you differ from John McCain.
Well I'm sure there are I had him gone through all the various issues in an analog for example I'm at least willing -- good study had an explorer I think he has said -- something he wants.
Not do I think we should at least take a look at it the footprint could be small there may be some other issues as well.
Anybody like that governor he say he said last night in his interview admitted that he would revisit -- That in light of the high price of gasoline so we did talk about stellar and really change in that position as well.
Well I'll mention some -- T Alan I don't know how high output gas is gonna have to go five bucks 617 bucks a gallon.
But if it gets to that point -- -- -- -- that Senator Obama flip this position on that as well.
Flipping and flopping or just flipping -- I just wanted to clear about governor thanks very much surveillance -- -- the other thank you very much doodling away then.
