The Republican presidential candidate will only say his choice is "probably an eleven" on a scale of one to ten.

Sources believe it's former New York congressman and N-F-L quarterback Jack Kemp.

Former housing secretary jack kemp isn't revealing any secrets about his status as a vice presidential contender:
JACK KEMP/FORMER HOUSING SEC. DON'T ANSWER QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE NOT BEEN ASKED. EVEN SO, ITS FLATTERING TO BE CONSIDERED
And all bob dole would reveal was how many names remained on his short list... but by the end of the day dole did say whoever he chooses will get a telephone call tonight.
While kemp was getting the most attention yesterday,,dole's aides cautioned not to place kemp at the top of the list of three which also includes michigan governor John Engler and Florida Senator Connie Mack.
It's no secret that kemp and dole have had a rocky relationship..they were rivals in 88 for the republican nomination..and this year kemp endorsed steve forbes but yesterday, forbes was pushing the pairing:
STEVE FORBES/FORMER PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: THE RUMORS ARE RIGHT, THERE'S NOW A VERY REAL CHANCE, THAT HE'S GONNA PICK, OR IS SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING PICKING, JACK KEMP FOR HIS VICE PRESIDENTIAL RUNNING MATE. IF HE DOES THAT, THAT CHOICE WILL ELECTRIFY THE CONVENTION.
Some say the former nfl pro quarterback could invigorate the campaign by striking a chord with female and minority voters. and his anti-abortion stand could also work in his favor.
But among Republican Delegates polled by CBS News Colin Powell is still the top choice for V.P. followed by governor Engler, -- Jack Kemp and New Jersey Governor Christine Whitman.
