From the Houston Chronicle:
Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's long-shot prospect for vice president is getting a push from conservative and other pundits in the lead-up to next week's Republican National Convention.

The latest flurry of speculation online and on cable television constitutes at least a third or fourth wave of chatter about Hutchison, whose name surfaces occasionally as a possible Republican vice-presidential candidate.

...Hutchison, 66, would be "an excellent choice," syndicated husband-and-wife columnists Dick Morris and Eileen McGann said in a piece that catalyzed renewed speculation on the subject.

In his online column for the conservative TownHall.com, Michael Medved argued that McCain should reject the Pawlenty-Portman-Romney types as too safe and take another look at Hutchison.
