Novak says McCain will announce VP this week...

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Sources close to Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign are suggesting he will reveal the name of his vice presidential selection this week while Sen. Barack Obama is getting the headlines on his foreign trip. The name of McCain's running mate has not been disclosed, but Mitt Romney has led the speculation recently. - ENPR
So McCain is playing his VP card to reduce the bounce Obama will get from his trip abroad. Any bounce McCain gets from this will be long gone by the time Obama announces.

Update: Novakula: "I was used!" His report about McCain announcing his running mate this week may have been “a dodge” by the campaign to grab some headlines from Obama.
