    Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, viewed as a possible running mate for Sen. John McCain, brought his ideas for reforming the Republican Party to Washington on Wednesday.

    In two appearances here, he criticized the party leadership for sometimes being out of touch with voters in recent years, offered a few kind words for Sen. McCain's Democratic rival, Sen. Barack Obama, and discussed possible new solutions for problems in health care and education -- areas many Republicans have written off as the Democrats' domain.

    EXACTLY the things which the current crop of Republicans do NOT want to tackle because the status quo on those currently works mostly to their benefit.

    Good idea though.

    All McCain has to do is become an authentic Democrat and he has a shot at winning.
