The traditional media beat the text message, my friends! CNN got the veep story before the Obama campaign could hit the send button on its cell phone. It was our John Henry moment. There will be songs sung.
And give credit to the Obama campaign for having the discipline to wait until 3 a.m. Saturday to do it - clever timing considering the Clinton campaign's most well-known ad (Andrew Sullivan called it). However, not everyone got the message at 3 a.m. Mine arrived at 1:04 a.m. Apparently some of the networks had trouble handling the load.
If the media was right about Biden, it's probably safe to say McCain will pick Mitt Romney. That announcement is scheduled for August 29, right after the Democratic National Convention wraps up.
Speaking of which, I'm flying out to Denver today. Posting will be spotty over the next week.
