On net, I think we can agree that Pawlenty is a safer choice than Ridge.  Pawlenty doesn't get anyone mad, doesn't piss anyone off, comes across as a bit of a lightweight but he's no Dan Quayle.

Ridge is a riskier choice (and, probably, on net, a worse choice on average)...but there is the possibility that he could be quite helpful, if he brings in PA and the McCain media team is able to paint Ridge in exactly the way Soulty described.

If McCain felt like he needed to gamble, Ridge might not be a bad option.  But, considering that McCain is down maybe 1 or 2 points nationally, I wouldn't risk Ridge at this point.  If he were down 4 or more, I might advise him to roll the dice...but we're not there right now.
