From what we can tell, Gov. Tim Pawlenty didn’t get a prime seat at the White House today when the nation’s governors met with President Barack Obama. You’ll have to click these to see the larger images.
We can’t find him to Obama’s right.
We don’t see him to the left:
And he didn’t make the photo op in front of the White House, which he’s considering running for in 2012.
Truth be told, though, we don’t see good seats being given to many of the Republican governors who aren’t making their presidential aspirations a secret. But, Bobby Jindal got a corner seat (in the first image).
