Obama's VP Selection Imminent. Be The First To Know...Sign Up For TXT Message Updates.

This was in the headlines but I thought I'd bump it up and open the floor to guesses as to who Obama is going to pick.

Sen. Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, is on vacation in Hawaii tonight. We believe. But, thanks to loyal Ticket reader Mark, just minutes ago we learned that the freshman senator's presidential campaign has confirmed that announcement of Obama's running mate choice is very near.

...The traditional scenario would be for Obama and his pick to appear at a grand joint announcement somewhere with their families and dozens of TV cameras.

However, if hypothetically the announcement was to be made dramatically via cellphone texts, e-mails and the Obama website, the two candidates would not need to be together.

And if it came, oh, say, sometime this week, it would instantly dominate the news stream and erase any advantage Republican Sen. John McCain might have gotten from a week of campaigning without the Democrats' competition.

I've got Virginia Governor Tim Kaine with the announcement coming next Monday morning. Whichever commenter guess the right candidate as well as the day of the announcement will receive all Ace of Spades HQ content absolutely free for one month. Good luck!
