Will McCain Pick Romney For His Bling?

His relationship with his wife's fortune shows that John McCain is all about using the cash of family and friends to fuel his political ambitions, so I wonder if the otherwise useless Mitt Romney might be at the top of his veep running mate list simply because the Mittster has a lot of cash in the bank? McCain is having a hard time raising funds, and Obama is running laps around him without even officially being the party's nominee. Come this fall, McCain is likely to get swamped. It bears emembering that almost 50% of the $97 million Mitt Romney raised for his failed primary campaign - [$42.3 million - came out of his own bank book.

Is McCain looking for a Sugar Daddy to complement the mommy he already has on board?
