(CNN) – Eager VP-watchers waiting for the text message announcement of Barack Obama’s choice of running mate have gotten their answer: It’s Hillary Clinton. And Tim Kaine. And Kathleen Sebelius.
Since declaring the Democratic vice presidential pick would first be announced over e-mail and text message, several hoax announcements of the Illinois senator's choice have circulated, purporting to be from the Obama campaign.
The latest came in e-mail Friday morning that hit the inboxes of many White House reporters, carrying the subject, "My Vice President."
The e-mail, from the address email@example.com, was purportedly from Barack Obama and read, "I said you would be the first to know, and you are - I have selected Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine as my running mate!”
No word on when the real e-mail will be sent.
This is great!! Its like telling the Cable Guy to wait at your house and you'll be there between 1 and 5...! awesome...the media can't stand it I'm sure, I love it...!!!
It's definitely Chet Edwards. You see, it was going to be John Edwards, but then the story about his mistress came out, so Obama had to pick someone else. But, he's already had thousands of stickers and banners printed that say "Obama-Edwards," so he has to dig up another Edwards...
hahahahahha I love it. Some body should be teaching a lesson to the press.
Who cares about the losing VP Candidate? Does any sane person believe that Barack Obama will be elected President?
Forget the polls...people will continue to vote on racial lines...ie. >90% African Americans vote for Obama....the white vote won't be much different.
you are obviously a paid RNC staffer.
Just hate Obama whatever he does, right?
p.s. what's the coordinated effort to diminish Obama's stature as a man? Limbaugh did it yesterday, now you. Must have gotten your talking points memo from the guy who ran bush's campaign that is now running mccain's.
Waiting.... Waiting.... ohhhhh.... ohhhhh.... myyyyyy
OH... Got A TEXT!
Dang... Not Him...
Waiting.... Waiting... ohhhhh... ohhhhh... myyyyyy
WHERE IS COLIN POWELL FOR PRES, WE NEED A MAN FOR PRES...PLEASE.

This just shows how excited people are about Obama.
you people are so narrow minded. Obama will announce when he's ready just have a little patience. Don't get on that band wagon and start calling names.
for those hillary supporters, IT'S NOT HER!!!!! LOL
HE IS NOT THE ONE THAT SENT THIS EMAL!! CANT YOU READ????
Are we going to have a big parade, and lights, and fireworks, and music when he announces the VP!? All this for someone who breaks a tie in the Senate...lol!
First a fake Bigfoot and now fake VP announcements?
Is nothing sacred anymore?
Oh, how soon you forget the idiocy of the supporters of George W. How soon you forget! What a shame.
And to everyone else who is whining and crying about this:
It's interesting that you are commenting here on a blog. If you think it's so stupid then why do you care enough to keep checking the ticker? Chill out. No one asked your permission about announcing via a text message. It is not the campaign that is making this a big deal. It is the media feeding the beast (web surfers like you).
OBAMA IS TOAST ANYWAY, IT MATTERS NOT FOLKS.
you guys criticize him for waking up in the morning and
for going to sleep at night.
"and 'that's not change we can believe in".....

Obama's vp ----WHO CARES. The guy at the top of the ticket doesn't deserve to be President in the first place!!!
