Can We End Talk of McCain/Pawlenty Yet?

Robert Novak reports that Sen. John McCain visited (behind closed doors) with Republicans at the National Governors Association over the weekend, where “governors from coal- and oil-producing states spelled out their problems with McCain’s energy policies, and he was responsive.”

Novak says there was one significant exception, however, to the perceived fence-mending, and that had to do with an oft-mentioned name to join McCain as VP on the GOP ticket:

It was a less favorable NGA meeting for the organization’s chairman, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. His carbon-emissions proposal was shot down by bipartisan opposition from the coal-oil bloc of governors, and that did not help his vice presidential aspirations.

As well it should have. With two global warming alarmists on the same ticket, you can pretty much say farewell to the conservative vote.
