Schweitzer is McCain's populist nightmare.

If McCain picks Mittens, who spent $100 million of his own money to run for President, then the repugs go down in flames as the party of the elite.

Everything will continue to be framed perfectly as working people versus the elite running on the heels of the 7 houses gaffe.

Check out the schedule for Obama as he makes his way to Denver.

Saturday: Springfield, Illinois. Where it all started.

Sunday: Eau Claire, Wisconsin. College town in a state he carried in the primary

Monday: Iowa's Quad Cities area. Iowa - where it all started with an upset win in the caucuses.

Tuesday: Kansas City, Mo. - Classic swing state.

Wednesday: Billings, Montana - A chance to showcase his push for western states and, more broadly, turf that Democrats used to write off.

Obama will be in Montana during Wednesday of the convention speaking up his new VP. If Schweitzer is VP he will be in Colorado giving his VP speech that same evening.

Who do you think will be VP?

Forget Bayh, Kaine and Biden. Obama is playing the dark horse shell game. Who is the real VP?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
