We've got two big stories that people are following:
1. The buzz about Biden. MSNBC's Howard Fineman said he spoke to two of Obama's potential vice presidential candidates, and that after that discussion, he boldy said that the choice will be Biden, barring an act of God (well, he said unless the Obama folks changed their minds. But it is more dramatic to put it this way).
Speaking of dramatic, however, Fineman did say one of those finalists would bet his life on it (not Fineman's – the candidate's).
Now CBS is saying Obama's text message will go out on Friday evening alerting subscribers the name of the candidate. What good is announcing when you are going to text someone? That's taking away from the surprise.
