Another V.P. name tossed into the hat by Drudge: David Petraeus

Published: Tuesday, Oct. 6 2015 3:19 a.m. MDT

Our take: The Drudge Report has created buzz before when it comes to Mitt Romney's possible vice president selection, but an insider assures that the push for Gen. David Petraeus is real. However, it seems legitimate sources from the White House and even Petraeus himself may think otherwise.

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!

Petraeus, the current Central Intelligence Agency director who previously served as the top commander in Iraq and Afghanistan, has repeatedly stated that he has no aspirations to political office.
