For Obama, Roundabout Path to Convention
By Anne E. Kornblut
CHESTER, Va. -- The Obama campaign is gearing up for a busy weekend: he'll presumably announce his vice presidential pick in the next 48 hours, then head out on the road to several battleground states on the way into Denver.
On his travel schedule: Eau Claire, Wis., on Sunday; the Quad Cities area of Iowa on Monday; Kansas City, Mo., on Tuesday; and Billings, Mont., on Wednesday. He will head into Denver later on Wednesday, picking up the toward the end of the Democratic convention.
No word yet on where his vice presidential pick will go with him, beyond Springfield, Ill., on Saturday. Earlier in the campaign, advisers suggested it was likely the vice presidential nominee would travel apart from the presumptive nominee for a little bit before making a separate arrival in Denver.
