Good Morning, News!

We're number 13! In booziest cities...

Sen. Barack Obama will announce his running mate choice to his supporters first, via email and text message. Old School media falls all over itself on this development: "In an e-mail to supporters last night, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said that Obama "is about to make one of the most important decisions of this campaign -- choosing a running mate" and promised that supporters who typed in their cell phone numbers would recieve a text message alerting them to the pick as soon as it was made." (See? The Atlantic is so astounded by the new technology, they can't be bothered to spell "receive" correctly.)

Olympic highlight of the day: Michael Phelps picks up another gold medal, on his quest for the most gold ever. Watch the race here!

Why wasn't John Edwards' affair reported sooner? "By early last week, journalists were in the awkward position of refusing to report on explosive allegations that were almost certain to knock the former North Carolina senator out of the Democratic convention. They were in a box of their own making, one that came to feel airtight and uncomfortable."

Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf's constituents are calling on him to quit.

Isaac Hayes is dead. RIP
