Update via The ACT Blog:

This is the kind of thing that isn’t supposed to happen - but, it appears that Obama’s VP will be Ind Senator Evan Bayh. This is coming from a premature release of the email which the Obama campaign intended to send out to supporters the morning of the announcement.

CNN reported the leak at this url:

http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/08/18/bayh.vp

..but that article has since been pulled from the site. However, THIS SCREENSHOT confirms that the article did, in fact, go up a little after 8 PM.

Still waiting for this to be picked up by FOX, I’ll report developments as they happen.

UPDATE: Aron Goldman from www.race42008.compointed out that the CNN article contains a couple of typos, suggesting this may be a fake. That is, of course, possible (I didn’t take the screenshot myself, so I can’t confirm the authenticity of it - though I don’t see Bayh as being the person to inspire a rumor mill - but mistakes aren’t uncommon online, Fox continues to report Obama’s speech at the 1904DNC convention.

UPDATE 2: This is via the same source from the original image - but some clippings from the second e-mail:

…a technical glitch occurred while updating the e-mail that will be sent to supporters upon the announcement of Sen. Obama’s VP….releasing the name of Indiana Senator Evan Bayh as his Running mate…at this point, the campaign is unwilling to confirm or deny this selection….asks that all supporters disregard the orginial email as a mistake until any official confirmation is made…

Obama can't control his aides, can't control the Clintons, can't control his pastor, can't control his wife. . .

What can he control?
