NY Times: No Veep Announcement Before Wednesday
The New York Times reports Obama's campaign says there will be no Veep announcement Tuesday. The Times thinks it's down to Kaine, Bayh and Biden.
The spin for those who don't like the Veep pick will be that Veep picks don't really matter.
“Vice-presidential candidates can make a marginal difference,” said Matt Bennett, the co-director of Third Way, a Democratic advocacy group, “but they rarely matter in terms of winning a state or region — as Mike Dukakis and John Kerry found out. And a weak candidate doesn’t really drag the ticket into the drink — as George H. W. Bush found out.”
Tell that to George McGovern -- Thomas Eagleton, anyone?
