I really expected Barack Obama to announce his vice president this afternoon. That way, the pick could lead the Thursday newscasts, when more people are paying attention than on Friday. Also, that way the running mate could have some time to prep for the expected joint appearence in Springfield, Illinois on Saturday.
Chris Cillizza writes exactly what I'm thinking:
One other interesting side note about the housing story: If Obama's campaign had planned to roll out their vice presidential pick at any point today, that announcement is likely to be put on hold. Why? The campaign believes the story about McCain's many houses is political gold and they won't want to step on it with a veep announcement that would immediately change the day's storyline.
