Is Barack Obama about to announce his running mate? I assume he will do it before the Democratic National Convention in Denver August 25-28. But will it be even sooner? Obama’s Campaign Manager David Plouffe just emailed this to supporters Sunday night. If you fill it out, you can be one of the first to know his number 2 (or so the email promises). Here’s the email:

Dear Dave —

Barack Obama is about to make one of the most important decisions of this campaign — choosing a running mate. You have helped build this movement from the bottom up, and Barack wants you to be the first to know his choice. Sign up today to be the first to know: You will receive an email the moment Barack makes his decision, or you can text VP to 62262 to receive a text message on your mobile phone. Once you’ve signed up, please forward this email to your friends, family, and coworkers to let them know about this special opportunity. No other campaign has done this before. You can be part of this important moment. Be the first to know who Barack selects as his running mate.
