Pretty insistent, if not quite a Sherman statement. Watching this, it occurred to me that I haven’t seen any stories claiming that he is, in fact, being vetted or even that he’s at the top of the shortlist. In fact, the Politico story from a few weeks ago that named Mitt as the frontrunner specifically said “McCain insiders” made no mention of Jindal.

Then again, Tim Pawlenty also claims he’s not being vetted while GOP sources say otherwise. Exit question, per the unofficial Hot Air policy of at least one post a day on Romney’s VP chances: Does Mitt indeed “tank the ticket”?
