"Straight Talk Air," the jet used by Republican presidential candidate John McCain, is due to arrive within the hour at the old international terminal at Philadelphia International Airport.

McCain's camp sent out alerts to the media, explaining when to get there.  So what's on McCain's mind today?  Will he talk about Hurricane Gustav or the scaled-back start to the Republican National Convention today or his surprise pick of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for the post of vice president?

None of the above, apparently.  McCain's people are at the airport saying he won't be speaking or answering questions.  Apparently, they just wanted the media there to capture him waiving for the cameras before roaring off for private meetings.
