It's safe to say the first seven headliners revealed by the Republican National Convention are unlikely to serve as Romney's running mate.

The list inlcudes former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez. The three women were all considered by be in the running.

So far there's no official role for otehr prominent Republicans, like former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, Ohio Senator Rob Portman and Florida Senator Marco Rubio.

Whoever is tapped as running mate will have a prime-time slot at this month's convention.
