It wasn't the best kept secret, but CNN reported at 1 a.m. today that Obama is officially picking Sen. Joe Biden of Delware as his running mate.
John King, CNN chief national correspondent, reported that Obama had come to the decision during his Hawaiian vacation.
Earlier in the night, ABC News had reported that Secret Service agents had been dispatched to Biden's home.
King said on air that Hillary Clinton was never really considered. He said Obama did not think Clinton was a good match on the ticket.
Biden will speak on the third night of the Democratic Convention in Denver, CNN said. That is the night of Aug. 27.
