Out: Condi. In: T-Paw?

New York Times national political correspondent Jeff Zeleny reports that the Romney campaign is considering Tim Pawlenty as a potential running mate. And the buzz is that Romney will announce his VP pick this week.

But Zeleny says this week … or not this week.

So that clears things up.

Twitter reaction to a Pawlenty pick ranges from “aw yeah!” to “hell no” to zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Some are suggesting that Romney is using VP speculation to distract from President Obama’s pathetic Bain attacks.

Meanwhile, talk of a John Thune pick is heating up.

Is Sen. Thune being vetted? Read tomorrow’s New York Times to learn that yes, he is, but also probably not.
