The secret it is out! Kind of. Despite an overt effort on the Romney campaign's part to keep their V.P. vetting process a mystery, Senator Rob Portman confirmed to ABC News Wednesday that he had an intense six meetings in six hours with chief Romney campaign advisors, including Beth Myers--the woman in charge of vetting Mitt's veep. "You know, I talk to those guys all the time on how things are going in Ohio and what the message ought to be back home in Ohio, so it was a good-good day," he said. Almost immediately after, though, he clarified that three of these meetings included campaign staffers and were focused on fundraising, not vetting.
