Obama to announce his VP running mate....whenever

I really have not wanted to engage in all the vice presidential speculation for either Barack Obama or John McCain's tickets. It is an endless run-around of speculating names which regurgitate even more names, summarizing with the same names. However, Obama will be announcing his VP running mate, per

(CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama called some people on his shortlist for the vice presidential slot Thursday night to tell them he had not selected them as a running mate, a highly placed Democratic Party source said.

The source did not say which people got the call.


The presumptive Democratic nominee is working Friday in Chicago, Illinois, on his address to next week's Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado. He has no public events scheduled Friday and will launch a string of rallies with his running mate on Saturday in Springfield, Illinois.

Obama said Thursday that he had made his decision but declined to give any further details.

Obama has told some other potential running mates over the last few weeks that he would not be choosing them, the Democratic source said.

"I won't comment on anything else until I introduce our running mate to the world," he told reporters in Emporia, Virginia. "That's all you're going to get out of me."

We now return you back to your vice presidential feeding frenzy.
