Pawlenty is getting more attention than conventional wisdom holds, according to our sources. He was once angling for a spot in Romney's Cabinet; now, he's sounding like he wants the job. "I think I can help [Romney] in other ways like this, being a volunteer for his campaign. But obviously anybody would be honored if asked," Pawlenty told NBC News last weekend in North Carolina (the testing ground!). That's a far cry from "take my name off the list," which had been his go-to line. Pawlenty matches the same "boring white guy" meme, and he and Romney have a real rapport. What may be most telling is that some of Pawlenty's closest advisers are staying mum on his prospects.
