McCain to Pick Fred Smith for Veep? Sez Who? 

Yep. This is what it will look like (click photo to enlarge):

And this is how Miz Marsha explained it to Larry King (since he asked) on Monday night:

Larry King: By the way, congresswoman Blackburn, do you have a favorite for vice president?

Rep. Marsha Blackburn: Well, I think that one of the things that you're going to see with the McCain decision -- this is just my own, my own speculation -- is that he will choose a non-traditional candidate. And I think...

Larry (grasping the thread): Like?

Marsha (forging ahead): ... that he will make a late decision. It would not surprise me to see a female. It would not surprise me to see a person of color. It would not surprise me to see a businessman - maybe someone like Fred Smth, who is the head of FedEx, who knows how to run a business. I think that you're going to see somebody outside of the box. McCain has always been a maverick, and I think you're going to see that come through as he chooses a running mate.
