DAILY GRINDER: Mitt Romney Likes Pickles and Sweet Peppers on his Wawa Meatball Hoagies

drudgeromneyThe Mitt Romney presidential campaign rolled into the Philly suburbs this weekend, and at one point hit up a Quakertown Wawa. He said stuff presidential candidates say, then ordered a meatball hoagie with pickles and sweet peppers while discussing his potential running mate. “I am considering a number of people for my running mate and carrying out the vetting and the due-diligence process,” he said. And besides that, he gave no indication of who he may pick. This article goes over the potential choices being rumored.
