By, say, Rove calling McCain's own reputed favorite (Lieberman) and
telling him to drop out of consideration? As reported by Rove's
mouthpiece, Novak?

No, that would never happen.

ahem. http://thinkprogress.org/2008/08/28/rove-lieberman-2/ (and yes,
it is a very liberal blog, but it directly quotes Novak as saying
McCain would pick Lieberman 'if he thought he could get away with it.'
But hey, he's not deep in hock to the crazy conservatives. Not at
all.)
