In its hyped-up story about when Obama will announce his running mate selection. Politico claims the candidate "is expected to choose his running mate this week." Then it reports, "the announcement could come "as late as the weekend."" And just to be safe, Politico notes the Olympics, which conclude Sunday, "could push the campaign to delay the move until the beginning of the Democratic National Convention the next day."

To recap: According to Politico's sharp reporting, Obama might announce his VP pick "this week." He might announce it "as late as the weekend." Or maybe it will be Monday.

We're so glad that's cleared up.
