How nervous would you be about accepting the second position on the ticket before the Republican National Convention, if things keep going this way for Romney?

There is some noise today about Jindal

Romney was in Louisiana's capital to raise money with the state's governor, Bobby Jindal. Fehrnstrom said Monday the two politicians did not discuss the possibility of Jindal joining the Romney ticket.

"He met with Gov. Jindal but they didn't talk about V.P.," Fehrnstrom said, mentioning that they did discuss education policy.

and Thune.
Sen. John Thune of South Dakota confirmed with The Hill that he had traveled to Boston to meet with Beth Myers, who is leading Romney's search for a vice presidential pick, along with other senior advisers at the presumptive GOP nominee's headquarters.
But I really wonder what these people are thinking right now.  The minute they become part of the ticket, their name becomes permanently linked to Romney.

How much worse can it get before some of the possible candidates are afraid to accept the offer?  If it was me, I would certainly wait out the rest of this week to see what the next turn in the plot is.

This could get very interesting.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
