ST. PAUL - Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty will not be John McCain's running mate, but today highly praised the woman who will be.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is the pick. Pawlenty described her as a terrific selection and a reformer.


"She's going to be a wonder, terrific, outstanding pick for the Republican Party, but more importantly she is going to be a great leader for our country," Pawlenty said.
