General Petraeus for VP?

Here's a rumor that sounds real - just cause it would be such a surprise, and a game changer.

The Drudge Report cites an unnamed source who overheard President Barack Obama talking about the Republican candidate's desire to name Petraeus as his running mate.

Drudge quotes an anonymous Democratic fundraiser, who says he overheard the president whispering this week about Romney courting Petreaus for the number two spot on the Republican ticket.

The general hold a PhD in international relations from Princeton University and is celebrated as one of the greatest military strategists in a generation.

He is wildly popular on both sides of the aisle. When Obama nominated him to lead the CIA, he passed senate confirmation with a 94-0 vote -- a nearly unprecedented unanimous vote in the heavily-divided Congress.
