Although the announcement could come any minute, it looks like Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama will announce his VP choice on Saturday.
He is holding a campaign event in Springfield, Illinois, the same place where he announced his candidacy. It is the home of President Abraham Lincoln. There's a really cool Lincoln library there, too.
Kid Reporter Joe Wlos will be at the event and will report back immediately on the choice and the speech: it will be the first the nation will hear from the number two person on the Democratic ticket.
So, what about Republican John McCain? He, too, is expected to announce his VP choice any day. Both candidates have conventions coming up in the next two weeks and the VP choices have to be ready to give the biggest speeches of their lives and start full-time campaigning for the biggest job!
