Some insiders close to Barack Obama tell me that I will hear definitively who the VP choice is before the campaign sends out its “text message” to the nation about who the vacationing candidate decides on. Who knows if they’ll come through. I’d pretty much settle on hearing who Obama definitively does not select.
That said, the campaign is offering to notify you first. . .officially. The campaign is going to send email and cell phone text messages to any who want to be on the distribution roster.

Alternatively, you can text VP to 62262 to receive a text message on your mobile phone.
Just a recommendation from The Washington Note to Team Obama: Why not send the news as a twitter comment too?
