The New York Times says Barack Obama may announce his VP pick as early as tomorrow. Why not wait until the convention next week? Partly to irritate the Clintons, possibly, but more likely because people are buzzing about the news of the last 48 hours: Obama's vapid performance at Rick Warren's church event. (His empty response to the question about "when life begins" was especially awful.) Even some of his supporters are wondering if there's much "there" when "The One" isn't using a Teleprompter. So it makes sense that the World's #1 celebrity wants to distract Americans by announcing something "big". One name being mentioned for Obama's #2 spot: Senator Bayh from Indiana.  Well, if Obama continues in his gaffes and rambling, empty responses to even the most basic questions the ticket could be "Obama-BYE".  Hillary's gotta be loving this.
