Romney VP announcement coming soon...tomorrow?

 There has been endless speculation about who Mitt Romney will pick for his running mate - not just who he will pick, but when the announcement will be made. 

As TechPresident reported yesterday, watching Wikipedia to see whose biography page gets a sudden flurry of updates and edits may be a sign. Checking out airplane hangars was a source of intel in 2004, when an airplane mechanic saw John Edwards' name being added to John Kerry's plane.

The Romney campaign has launched an app for iPhone and Android, "Who Will Be Mitt's VP?", and they may have given an important clue at least about the timing of the announcement.

I downloaded the app on my iPhone a few days ago, and just got this email less than an hour ago:

You already downloaded the Mitt's VP app -- thank you! America's Comeback Team could be announced any day now.
But I just wanted to remind you that you still need to do one more thing in order to be the first to find out who Mitt has selected as his running mate.
To get an exclusive notification of Mitt's VP selection before anyone else, you need to turn on your phone's push notifications.
  • On an iPhone, go to your settings application, then notifications. Ensure "Mitt's VP" is "In notification center."
  • On an Android, open "Mitt's VP" application and click on the gear icon. Ensure push notifications is set to on.
So turn on your phone's push notifications now, and you'll be first to get the history-making scoop.

Sure sounds to me like the campaign is getting ready. 

What do you think? Is the announcement coming tomorrow, or on Thursday as Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol predicted?
