Yes, that's right. Johnson has resigned. Jonhson says he did not want to become "a distraction."
Update: Here's the statement on the resignation from the Obama camp: “Jim did not want to distract in any way from the very important task of gathering information about my vice presidential nominee, so he has made a decision to step aside that I accept. We have a very good selection process underway, and I am confident that it will produce a number of highly qualified candidates for me to choose from in the weeks ahead. I remain grateful to Jim for his service and his efforts in this process."
Hmm..It's probably time to update the list of "distractions" so far in Obama's campaign. Here we go:
wife's American pride
Bitter people who cling to religions and guns
What else am I missing?
