Biden our time

Nothing for sure yet, but all signs at this late hour on Friday night point to an Obama-Biden ticket.

Reuters and MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell have reported, and Keith Olbermann repeated several times earlier tonight, that Evan Bayh and Tim Kaine were alerted that they are not the pick.

Elsewhere, Marc “I never sleep” Ambinder found info about a charter jet that left Chicago’s Midway Airport earlier this evening landed in New Castle, Delaware, about two hours ago.

There is also a bustle at the Biden residence.

If it is Joe Biden the Obama folks had better get that damn text message out before all the people who signed up for the alert go ballistic.

Could mean nothing, but...
