Potential Republican vice presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty, nudge enthusiast?

John McCain’s vice presidential search is heating up with talk that McCain may announce his pick as early as this week. Near the top of the potential veep list is Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty. When he’s not running the state’s government, Pawlenty hosts a Friday morning call-in radio show called Good Morning Minnesota. In May, Pawlenty welcomed Thaler for a discussion about Nudge. (The link to the full show is here. Thaler shows up about halfway through. Unfortunately, the web controls do not show time elapsed.) Those who’ve listened to Thaler’s podcasts before will be familiar with much of the discussion. Pawlenty’s questions seem to indicate that he’s read Nudge, but he doesn’t tip his hand with exactly what he thinks about it.
