When Can We Expect a VP Announcement?

2

Historically speaking…

  • George W Bush announced Cheney as his running mate 4 days prior to the convention.
  • John Kerry announced John Edwards as his running mate 20 days prior to the convention (which was considered too long).
  • Bill Clinton announced Al Gore as his running mate 4 days prior to the convention.
  • Al Gore announced Joe Lieberman as his running mate a week before the convention.
  • George HW Bush announced Dan Quayle as his running mate ON the first day of the convention (which was considered too short notice).

Some say The Olympics schedule (July 25th – August 10th) may interfere with Obama’s announcement, stealing some of his thunder, but the Obama Camp assures us “they’ll work around it.”

Democratic National Convention: 7 weeks away (Monday, August 25th)
Republican National Convention: 8 weeks away (Monday, September 1st)
