At the top of his website where millions of eyes will undoubtedly see, Matt Drudge is floating David Petraeus, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, as a possible vice presidential pick for Mitt Romney. Drudge is polling his readers on Petraeus, who served nearly four decades in the U.S. Army before taking the helm at the CIA under President Barack Obama in September of 2011. 

Drudge is crowdsourcing, in perhaps a similar fashion to what he did with Condoleezza Rice a few weeks ago

Almost 90,000 people have already voted, and 44 per cent of Drudge readers vote no, compared with 38 per cent that approve:

 There’s probably a simple reason why Petraeus won’t be chosen: He’s the current director of the CIA, and the perception of choosing politics before country would probably backfire against both him and Romney. Also, no one really knows what his politics are, anyway.
