Evan Bayh is out.  Tim Kaine is out.  Private planes and secret service and family members are headed to Sen. Joe Biden's home.  Gee, I wonder...

Unless this is one large head-fake, then the media sniffed out Obama's pick about 12 hours ahead of when supporters will get their exclusive-just-for-supporters-because-our-campaign-is-so-innovative text message.

Most of us always understand that the "text message" was a marketing gimick.  Just another sign that the Obama campaign is politics as usual -- just with a big pile of cash to play with.
