"Sources close to Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign are suggesting he will reveal the name of his vice presidential selection this week while Sen. Barack Obama is getting the headlines on his foreign trip."The VP choice is about the highest card a campaign can play in the game of steal the headline. Obama's trip, with the accompanying Maliki announcement, must have shaken the McCain camp to the foundations for this notion to be taken seriously enough to be passed around even as a trial baloon.
There are a lot of big Obama moments to come - his own veep announcement, the convention and who knows what reactions to what breaking events or evolving issues. If McCain's ready to use up his best response now, Obama could own the pace and content of the traditional media message from now to November.
Senator McSame? Toast, I tell ya'.
