Obama Veep News Soon?

NBC News notes that Sen. Barack Obama is joined in Washington, D.C. today by top aides David Plouffe, David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs. In addition, his vice presidential search team leaders, Caroline Kennedy and Eric Holder, are also in D.C. today.

Could a decision on Obama’s running mate be near?

“The convergence of all the senior staff here with that search committee only further signals that the process is at a critical stage. The campaign, of course, is not commenting on it.”

Update: MSNBC spotted Obama at Holder’s office.  h/t Political Wire

UPDATE 2 (from Pamela 8:03 pdt): Politco and the WaPo are both murmuring about Tim Kaine tonight… First from Politico:

Kaine, an early Obama supporter whose biography nicely dovetails with the Illinois senator’s, “ranks very, very high on the short list,” said a source who has spoken recently to senior Obama aides about Kaine.

And then from the WaPo:

Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine has told close associates that he has had “very serious” conversations with Sen. Barack Obama about joining the Democratic presidential ticket and has provided documents to the campaign as it combs through his background, according to several sources close to Kaine.

Stay tuned
