Prominent Republicans Reject VP Overtures

CNN International has an interesting piece on the number of republicans publicly distancing themselves from a Romney ticket.   This strikes me as particularly interesting given that Romney is in a dead-heat with Obama right now in most of the national polls.  The Republicans certainly feel that this election can be won, yet many of the best candidates to bolster the ticket have already declined consideration.  This could just be posturing by all of the possible choices, but, if I am Romney, I am not excited about picking a running mate who has publicly and repeatedly distanced himself from the possibility.
