Find Out Obama’s VP Pick Via SMS

Obama_VP.jpgGearlog has confirmed that Barack Obama‘s campaign will be sending out the name of his pick for vice president via text message. It’s not a vote, so there’s no American Idol-style interaction or anything—but it’s actually happening.

“Let me be very clear,” said Obama spokesman David Plouffe in an e-mail. “You are the ones who built this campaign, and Barack wants you to be the first to know who will join him in leading our movement for change.”

To sign up, text the word “VP” to OBAMA (62262) from your cell phone, or fill out this form on the Obama campaign Web site. If you’ll do, you’ll be among the first to know who the vice presidential nominee is.
