It's VP decision time. Any day now we expect Senators Barack Obama and John McCain to name their running mates. Tonight, Republican sources tell CNN that two key McCain aides have been calling activists to get their feedback on several possible VP picks, including former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge. "If he picks Ridge, the convention blows up, you will have a base completely demoralized," said one activist. "And it will be viewed that he is ceding the future of the GOP to a liberal Republican. It would be a disaster," the activist went on to say. The republican base doesn't like Ridge because he's pro-choice. But do you think McCain is planning a VP surprise? Would a McCain-Ridge ticket interest you?
As for Obama's VP pick, Senator Joe Biden is trying to weaken the buzz surrounding his name. He told reporters outside his Delaware home today, "You got better things to do guys. I'm not the guy." But he could be just playing around. We'd like to know who do you think Obama will pick as his vice presidential nominee.
Also tonight, a story we've been following for months, the so-called Terror Watch List.
Since the September 11th attacks the Department of Homeland Security has tried to make sure no known terrorists ever get to board a commercial airline flight again. But the problem is too many law-abiding people are finding their names on the terror watch list, including our own investigative reporter Drew Griffin. Since he did a report on his predicament , dozens of CNN viewers have written to tell us how they're caught on the list, too. Three of those names caught our attention, because they're the same. And, one of them is just 8-years-old.
All that and more starting at 10pm ET.
