    • NOTES (3)

      • Version update
        On the US East coast version, Governor Tim Pawlenty was fronted first as a potential candidate. Mitt Romney, Joe Liebermann, or Meg Whitman , but on the US West coast (live PDT) version, they're definitely pointing to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (extensive footage with the large guy with the Stop Obama Express sign and another guy with Bush McCain More of the Same)

        Throughout the broadcast, the NBC News team updates on the VP candidate picks. Matt does a special update for NBC News to announce selection of Sarah Palin.
