Obama Set To Make VP Announcement, Who Will It Be?

As of right now, the plan for the Obama camp is to release the name of his choice for VP to his supporters via e-mail and text messages on early Wednesday morning.

Once this is known, the news is expected to go absolutely crazy, as every source from around the world will likely pick up the story in some capacity.

So the big question remains, who is he going to choose as his running mate?

The popular choice in the minds of many Democrats would have been to go with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, but that does not appear to be an option.

Instead, Obama has narrowed it down to three choices…

1. Sen. Evan Bayh of Indiana
2. Gov. Tim Kaine of Virginia.
3. Sen. Joseph Biden Jr. of Delaware

All three of these choices are said to be very conservative moves for Obama, who is apparently not trying to change things up with his announcement.

The front-runner at this point appears to be Evan Bayh, with the others closely behind.

Obama made his decision while he was on vacation in Hawaii.

All will be known tomorrow morning, as the two are expected to campaign together from that point on.
