(Newser) – Oops? Per a story in the Washington Post Sunday, Ben Carson may have accidentally revealed Donald Trump's VP shortlist. During a ride-along with a reporter, Carson was asked about a new poll listing the best-liked potential running mates for Trump: John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin, Chris Christie, and himself—Carson. "Those are all people on our list," Carson told the reporter. "Well, not you," his wife reminded him. Earlier this month, Trump said that Carson would be part of a committee used to select a VP candidate. Also earlier this month, Carson said Trump would consider a Democratic running mate, though Trump had already said that wasn't going to happen. (Read more Election 2016 stories.)
