JR picked up on a comment from Romney, who is currently considered at the head of the GOP pack:
"Romney said that McDonnell has been an 'incredible governor' and will be on 'any candidate’s short-list' for Vice President."Which helped lead to the question of a possible Romney-McDonnell ticket in 2012.
The news outlets jumped on it and have been running with JR's supposition ever since with multiple links to Bearing Drift from nationwide sources.
