Former White House chief of staff touts Blunt for vice president
The talk of Gov. Matt Blunt as a possible vice presidential candidate for John McCain is not limited to Missouri political pundits.
Andy Card, former chief of staff to President Bush, has our governor on his short list for vice president. "I would take a good luck at Matt Blunt," Card said moments ago in an interview on MSNBC's Morning Joe program.
Card named only three prospects and mentioned each of them twice. The other two were former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who announced his support for McCain Thursday, while the other was Rob Portman, former White House budget director, and former Congressman from Ohio.
