UPI: McCain considering 3 women

This from the UPI:
Three women are being considered for the vice presidential post strategists say is McCain's best way to appeal to disappointed supporters of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., the Washington publication said.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would be a clear choice, the Politico said. She has denied interest.

Another possibility is Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who is "becoming a star in the conservative movement, a fiscal conservative in a state that is looking like a boondoggle for pork barrel spending," Kellyanne Conway, a Republican pollster, told Politico.

A second choice would be Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive who now leads the GOP's get-out-the-vote operation.

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, the Republican Party's longest-tenured female senator also is being considered. Hutchison leads the Republican Policy Committee after heading the Senate Republican Conference, Politico said.
