Why is Tim Kaine not scheduled to speak

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Tim Kaine is the highest profile Democrat who has not been given a speaking slot. Why is that? Here's one possibility:

There are two key speaking positions still unannounced: Who will place Obama's name in nomination on Wednesday, and who will introduce him (or really his film) on Thursday? My guess is that Kaine is the choice to nominate him on Wednesday, but that they don't want to announce it, and then have to replace him if he gets chosen as the VP. We'll know soon.
