I'm done with the Veep talk. This is my last post on the topic until I get my text message.
I was thinking (again!) as I was driving home last night about the pros and cons of Biden when I realized the obvious -- every has them -- and you can go on forever about any name thrown out.
Everyone seems to agree the short list is:
The campaign will probably announce on Friday but it could be as early as Thursday night by text message.
I think it takes computers time to text 1 million people so my guess as the text starts going out the buzz will be huge as some people get the message and text others who haven't gotten it yet, etc.
Maybe I've just been thinking about this too long (well, clearly that's true) but I'm starting to think the veep might actually be a big surprise to all of us as in someone who we never thought he would pick. And by this I don't mean Wesley Clark, but someone we will find a little stunning.
And finally, isn't it impressive at how tight-lipped the Obama campaign has been on this? Clearly, very few people know what Obama is really thinking or we would be seeing better leaks. When you read Fineman's comments from yesterday, it seems clear that he is just repeating educated speculation from people who don't know what Obama is thinking. Those campaign workers just below the top level love to leak to prove to members of the press that they are 'in the know' and in the inner circle of the campaign. Those preening jackasses clearly have no idea or we would all know.
Any last minute thoughts?
