I have stated (and been blasted for) the fact that NBC has confirmed the text time (9pm EDT) and the name.

I guess I'll stop saying it!

you are welcome to visit Oregon for a night out at the Lamplighter Inn, in beautiful downtown Oakland. On me.

25. If it's Biden, it's the worst kept secret I've ever seen.
Just about every pundit has said it would be Biden for a week now, so they're either psychic or the Obama team has been leaking.

26. It'd be a coup if Keith could hold his cell phone up to the camera and say "Watch!"
That'd be a very iconic moment.

34. If ANY media personality deserves to get special treatment, it's Keith.
Lest we forget, he started speaking out before any other talking head ... and DU was ecstatic after so long in the desert.

32. I still remember a poster who swore John Edwards was going to drop out the day after
the NH primary. She just kept repeating it over and over that she knew from inside sources that it's a fact, and then the next day when it didn't happen, she admitted she lied.

MSNBC - Reporting Bayh and Kaine have been told their 'not the guy'. And K.O. said - Hillary was never in the running.

45. I'm starting to think it's Biden
Richardson, Sebellius, Bayh and Kaine have all been reported to have gotten phone calls, and Biden is the only prominent one not showing up on a morning show on Sunday.

It could be a longshot like Edwards (the new Edwards, not the old Edwards), but if I had to bet right now at this late minute I'd put my money on Biden.

48. And you're assuming that those reports are true?
Why would they say a word that they didn't get it? I'm certain that they've been sworn to secrecy until the announcement is made. There's been so much BS out there today, you can't count on that at all. I doubt the DNC would want Biden. It'll be someone from the heartland or South. Two city slickers would be a bad choice... America loves those cowboys (even if they're totally fake ones pretending to clear brush on camera at their "ranch")

47. Well then the DNC would show their fear of success once again..
.. cuz we dont' have a chance in hell of winning with two lawyer-like dudes in expensive suits running against the mythical "Straight Talk Express". I mean.. how many times do we have to have our ass kicked by fake cowboys and "regular guys" to get the hint that the majority of voters want someone they can relate to or are inspired by?

Biden is okay as a Senator, but god.. what a mistake it would be for VP.
