Jindal, Pawlenty, Portman on Romney's VP short list, according to reports

Reuters is reporting that Mitt Romney could tap his vice-presidential nominee very soon and that Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Ohio Sen. Rob Portman are the leading candidates.

None of the three would be dramatic surprises like the pick of Sarah Palin in 2008. Jindal would be the boldest, the first-ever Indian-American nominated for president or vice-president. Pawlenty and Portman, unlike Jindal, have the advantage of being from key electoral states that both candidates are hotly contesting.

If the report is accurate, former Secretary of State Condi Rice, who had long said she did not want to be selected as the GOP candidate for vice-president, will get her wish. Rice could appeal to swing voters, as both a woman and African-American Republican, but conservatives oppose her because she supports abortion rights.
