VP McCain? 

This rumor brought to you by The Washington Note:
Steve, just heard from trusted friend that McCain was approached about serving as VP if Cheney has "health problems" or otherwise steps down.

Beyond that, speculation that Miers will step down to be replaced by a Bork-like sub (even better, Bork himself...). In other words, Cheney takes a bullet, a titanic battle over SCOTUS ensued to change the subject. You didn't hear this from me, but feel free to pass on such unsubstantiated rumors.

Steve is right: Bush's ship is sinking. Now's not the time for McCain to jump aboard and go down with it. Bush may be hoping that a VP McCain may bring him back up. Perhaps, Democrats should hope that McCain goes down with Bush, thus knocking the President McCain threat off the table. Moreover, maybe that's exactly why Bush Co. wants McCain onboard.

Update 10/27 12:11 PM EST: McCain says No
