VP Petraeus?

Could Mitt Romney be mulling a General David Petraeus pick for vice president? According Matt Drudge, the answer is yes but the name came from the lips of President Obama during a fundraiser, not from Romney himself.

President Obama whispered to a top fundraiser this week that he believes GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney wants to name Gen. David Petraeus to the VP slot!

"The president wasn't joking," the insider explains to the DRUDGE REPORT.

A Petraeus drama has been quietly building behind the scenes.

Romney is believed to have secretly met with the four-star general in New Hampshire.

The pick could be a shrewd Romney choice. A cross-party pull. The Obama administration hailed Petraeus as one of history's greatest military strategists. Petraeus was unanimously confirmed as the Director of the CIA by the US Senate 94-0.

A Petraeus pick would definitely shake things up and knock President Obama on his foreign policy credential, something he has been depending on to carry him into November.
