95. Because they wanted to take advantage of McCain's gaffe
McCain's number of houses gaffe was a gift. My suspicion is that the Obama campaign fully intended to release their VP pick on Friday, but when the McCain gaffe dropped in their laps, they took advantage of it for another day. They weighed the pros and cons, and decided that the risk of dragging out the VP announcement a little longer was much lower than the reward of having a real solid issue to attack McCain with.
