That's what's being floated, by Obama no less according to a flash Drudge report:
President Obama whispered to a top fundraiser this week that he believes GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney wants to name Gen. David Petraeus to the VP slot!
"The president wasn't joking," the insider explains to the DRUDGE REPORT.
A Petraeus drama has been quietly building behind the scenes.
Romney is believed to have secretly met with the four-star general in New Hampshire.
The pick could be a shrewd Romney choice. A cross-party pull. The Obama administration hailed Petraeus as one of history's greatest military strategists. Petraeus was unanimously confirmed as the Director of the CIA by the US Senate 94-0.
But Petraeus has categorically asserted that he has NO political ambitions. And Team Obama stands prepared to tie one of their own to "Bush wars." A Petraeus pick could been seen as simply shuffling the decks of power in DC.
"He's a serious man, for seriously dangerous times," notes a top Republican.
Anyone, and I do mean anyone, is better than Biden as VP and on that note alone, Petraeus gets my endorsement.
And the fact that Harry Reid and a host of others of his ilk have questioned the character of the man makes him an even better pick.
Only time however will tell, and not much time, if this is a trial balloon of sorts being floated by Obama as a political misdirection ploy.
