More Rumors from Steve Clemons: No VP 4 Bayh, Daschle, Clark, Reed

Steve Clemons has sources. Deep behind friendly lines in occupied Chicago. They say: No VP for Evan Bayh, Tom Daschle, Jack Reed, or Wesley Clark.
But sources close to Obama report to me that after the "surge of concern" on the net about Evan Bayh, he has not been selected as Obama's VP running mate.
I have been informed that the decision has been made, and I don't know who that person is.
I also have been told that Tom Daschle is not the running mate. I also happen to know that it is not Wesley Clark.
I just received word that it is not Senator Jack Reed either, though Obama thought very highly of him.
In my estimation, that leaves Joseph Biden, Chuck Hagel, and Sibelius. I don't think that Tim Kaine would be the nominee given the elevation of Mark Warner as the keynote speaker at the Dem convention.
Clemons goes on to say that another smart fellow in the know (but apparently, not a source) he's spoken with in the last 24hrs says that Obama could totally pull a Evel Knievel and blow our minds with something unexpected.
I love Steve Clemons' sources!!!
