...literally. From the PolitickerMA:
A lot of people talked about Mitt Romney filling out the Republican ticket this year, but, according to a former campaign adviser, Romney was actually betting against himself.

Ron Kaufman, a close friend of Romney's who worked on his aborted presidential campaign, said there was a bet between the two of them over Romney's chances of getting tapped as John McCain's vice presidential nominee.

Kaufman bet the former governor would be on the ticket. Romney said he wouldn't make it.

With Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska prepared to accept the nomination here this week, Kaufman said he is donating his stake to two charity events Romney is attending during the Republican National Convention.

The beneficiaries of the wager will be U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and Erik Paulsen, who is running in Minnesota's 3rd Congressional District.

I posted a blog post recently on my political blog basically saying my thoughts on Romney- I would absolutely love it to have him as the #2, as it would firmly plant him in the #1 spot in 2012 (assuming McCain only runs for one term). But I think there is a strong enough anti-Mormon bias in the South that it might actually mean losing some of the critical Southern states, and that would result in a loss overall for McCain. Yea, you might put Michigan in play, and you might even put Nevada in the running, but you avoid the critical rule of a VP pick- first, do no harm. It's too bad that the GOP is held ransom by a fringe religious fanatic sect, embodied in the forked-tongue Huckabee. But such is life. MITT FOR 2012! And Palin-McCain for 2008.



I think Mitt would have been picked if McCain hadn't screwed up on the houses thing.
