Just Pictures, Nothing More

Tim Craig

Several members of Gov. Timothy M. Kaine's (D) senior staff accompanied him to the Omni Hotel in Richmond this morning, which was where Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill) stayed last night.

But it doesn't appear as if the visit by Kaine's staff, including his communications director and chief legal counsel, had anything to do with the rampant speculation surrounding Obama's choice of a running mate.

"We had our picture taken with him," said Gordon Hickey, Kaine's press secretary. "We weren't involved in anything else. We just stood there, had our picture taken and we left...(Obama) came walking in, we stood there, had our pictures and he left."

Also this morning, Kaine appeared on CNN's American Morning. Kaine's remarks during the interview have been picked up by media outlets across the country because he mocked Arizona Sen. John McCain's (R) apparent confusion yesterday over how many houses he owns.

Kaine is now at an event with Obama in Chesterfield County. Later today, Kaine gets back to his day job by appearing at anti-drunk driving event in Hanover County.

Obama will be just fine. Hes weathered a book called Obama Nation. Soon they will be making a movie about Barry OBama's teen years

Why is Kaine going early to Denver? I know he is being "honored" by Dominion Power, the largest producer of greenhouse gases in Virginia. So much for being serious about combating global warming. Guess he cares more about campaign contributions. Surprise.
