John McCain will supposedly make his VP choice on Friday, and it's a minefield for him and the party. Many of the names being floated are plain bad, see here and here.
I mentioned Sarah Palin before, and I doubt she ever made the top tier, but now that Sen. Ted Stevens and Rep. Don Young have won their primaries, and the fact that John McCain hasn't flipped (yet) on ANWR works against the rationale of that pick.
If Chris Cox were willing to take the job, he's probably as good as we can hope for at this point.
