McMorris Rodgers gets another veep mention

No. 6 in line? McMorris Rodgers at a recent press conference.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers is ranked No. 6 on a list of 10 possible Republican vice presidential candidates by a GOP leaning election blog, Race 4 2012.

It describes her as "the biggest potential dark horse candidate" and plunks her down between Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan.  It also commends her "gravitas."

As nice as it is to have a Washington congresswoman on someone's short list, it should be noted that this blog doesn't even seem to know that the state's precinct caucuses are being held this weekend. So we'll take their Veep list with a grain of salt.
