After a chartered plane took off from Chicago to Delaware earlier tonight, CNN has confirmed that Virginia Governor Tim Kaine, Indiana Senator Evan Bayh, and Senator Hillary Clinton of New York were told that they would not be the VP choice, and that Delaware Senator Joe Biden is the official pick. The official e-mail/text message announcement is expected in hours. I may be at the state convention, so I may not be able to break it live.
Update as of 12:58 A.M. EDT: NBC confirms that Democratic party officials have confirmed that Joe Biden is the VP pick.
