obamadebate.jpg On Saturday, presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama chose the innovative approach of announcing his Vice Presidential running mate via a text message to supporters.  In an effort to entrust the message to the most experienced text and IM messenger possible, the Illinois Senator enlisted 8th grader Kylie Decker-Morrison of Rapid City, South Dakota to compose the historic announcement.
