ST. PAUL - The speculation is almost over.
For months, political observers have been preoccupied about whether Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty will be John McCain's running mate, but the Republican presidential candidate's campaign did its best to keep the decision secret - and pundits chattering about it - as long as possible. McCain and his running mate are to appear together in Dayton, Ohio, at 11 a.m. Central time today.
