Klobuchar, Pawlenty on veep list
ST. PAUL - One of the country's most quoted political scientists labels U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Gov. Tim Pawlenty as potential vice presidential candidates.
Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia Center for Politics said the Minnesota governor is a conservative who offers a "Midwest twist, executive experience." It is good that Republican Pawlenty, whom he called a "McCain favorite," is from a swing state.
