It looks like Palin is a no-go

As much as I hate to put much stock in an unnamed "Republican consultant," I do get the feeling that this is probably accurate:

One source with knowledge of McCain's VP selection process said the Arizona senator would like to pick a woman for his VP if he could find a perfect fit.

Possibilities tossed about include U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

But a consultant, familiar with McCain's VP search who asked to not be identified, said none of those women fill the bill.

My prediction as of this moment is that McCain will choose someone who doesn't antagonize the base, but doesn't really excite anyone outside of Washington, DC (think SEC Chairman Chris Cox, OMB Director Rob Portman, or Gov. Mitt Romney).
