Be The First To Know Obama's VP

2

Just got an email from the campaign, and this seems like a sign that Obama’s Veep pick could be coming a little bit sooner than we thought.

From Obama’s site:

Barack is about to choose a running mate, and he wants you to know first. You have helped build this movement from the bottom up, and Barack wants you to be part of this important moment.

Sign up today and we’ll send you an email announcing Barack’s running mate.

You can also text VP to 62262 to receive a text message on your mobile phone.

Personally, I’m not going to sign up because I’m pretty sure I follow the news closely enough to know when this will be announced. Obama’s camp won’t just surprise everybody because they’ll want to maximize media coverage.

However, for those of you on the go, this may be a good way to stay on top of the latest news from this campaign, especially the Veep pick.

Also, I just checked over at McCain’s site, and I couldn’t find anything like this, but if you know of some type of mobile alerts system, please drop me a line and I’ll post it.
