The first wave of headline speakers for the 2012 GOP Convention in Tampa, Florida were announced

The seven announced speakers are:

Florida Gov. Rick Scott,
Sen. John McCain
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley
Ohio Gov. John Kasich
New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice

The keynote speaker and others will be named closer to the Aug. 27-30 event, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said in announcing the headliners, whom he called "some of our party's brightest stars, who have governed and led effectively and admirably in their respective roles."


Noticeably absent from the headliner list are several VP contenders: former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.

I guess you can scratch all of the announced speakers above off any potential VP list.

@ anon...2:54...truer words were never spoken. Sarah is not a fave in Tampa and won't be welcomed with open arms if she foolishly tries to outshine Romney at the Channelside mall. If she's looking for a flash-mob..it won't happen in Tampa.
