Politically Speaking: GOP wish list for vice president

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

I'm in the the midst of interviewing the six Siouxland persons who
will be going to the Sept. 1-4 Republican Party national convention
as voting delegates. In addition to asking about the excitement level
on participating in the biggest national political stage, I'm also
querying them on the Republican they'd like to see John McCain pick as
a running mate. So far the vice presidential list includes Mike
Huckabee, John Thune and Charles Grassley. The list being debated
nationally has the likes of Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney and Tom Ridge. I
first pitched the veep preference question to Dan Lederman of Dakota
Dunes, S.D., who quickly answered with Thune, the senator representing
South Dakota. Sitting next to Lederman, delegate Bob Vander Plaats
then immediately also used a home state name, Grassley, before saying
he could definitely support Thune on the ticket.
