It’s looking like the pick is Senator Joe Biden… Marc Ambinder picked up on this item:
A flight from Midway to New Castle, DE… to pick someone up? Who knows? No other flights from anywhere in and around Chicago to anywhere in and around Delaware… or vice versa. Just this charter.
Here’s the FlightAware link from Ambinder: http://flightaware.com/live/flight/EJA863
Of course it could be another ruse to throw the media and bloggers off the trail, but CNN has this (Posted: 08:44 PM ET):
After hours staking out Joe Biden’s Delaware home with no sign of the prospective VP candidate, reporters are now witnessing a flurry of activity.
Cars have recently pulled into the driveway — including a police car — and Biden’s daughter, son, and wife are now believed to be inside.
Is the Delaware Democrat gathering his family ahead of a big announcement?
The Obama camp is certainly getting some mileage out of all this hype and speculation. If the Biden family is preparing for the big announcement, this certainly seems like an odd time to spring it… Late night on a Friday. Maybe, camp Obama will do a midnight email and text message blast… Or they will hold off the hungry media until the morning perhaps when there is an event scheduled in Illinois:
Late Friday, several officials said the text message announcement would be distributed Saturday morning, a few hours before a scheduled rally at the Old State Capitol in Springfield, Ill., where the Democratic ticket would appear for the first time.
Stay tuned… As team Obama plays the pick for every ounce of coverage they can!
