Obama has set an elaborate roll-out to announce his decision that will begin with an early morning e-mail to supporters, perhaps as early as Tuesday, [NY Times reporters] Zeleny and Adam Nagourney have been told.
A top source close to Caroline Kennedy tells DRUDGE -- the pick is more likely to come early Wednesday morning.

Which almost certainly means Tim Kaine, who'll appear with Obama in Martinsville, Va., at an invitation-only event Wednesday.

UPDATE: The New York Times story is now online and no big whoop:

Senator Barack Obama has all but finalized his choice for a running mate and set an elaborate roll-out plan for his decision, beginning with an early morning alert to supporters, perhaps as soon as Wednesday, followed by a trip to swing states by the new Democratic ticket, aides said. . . .
Mr. Obama had not notified his choice -- or any of those not selected -- of his decision as of late Monday, advisers said. Going into the final days, Mr. Obama was said to be focused mainly on three candidates: Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana, Governor Tim Kaine of Virginia and Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware.
Nothing really earthshaking in this story, for anyone who's been watching the veepstakes closely.
