Or has the presidential sheen of governors suddenly worn thin this week?
Let's say what we really want right now is an incredibly clean governor. Perhaps the very quality that made Mitt Romney seem oddly unhuman to people a couple months ago will seem cozily reassuring now.
IN THE COMMENTS: This isn't about Romney, but it's an important angle on the choice of governors that I think a lot of people won't understand:

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. Young (47) effective governor of a blue state. Good campaigner, has been elected statewide twice. Can help McCain carry critical midwestern states, including Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin, and can help in states like Colorado and Ohio too.
I don't see how a Minnesotan helps someone carry Wisconsin or Iowa.
