Virginia is certainly an important state for Senator Barack Obama to target for his 2008 Presidential race and this is why that state's Governor, Tim Kaine, has had very short odds in recent weeks to become Obama's running mate and next Vice President at Bookmaker.com But by Friday evening we already knew that Tim Kaine would not be Obama's running mate.

Asked if he was on Barack Obama's vice presidential short list of candidates Kaine said," I would rather just leave it to the campaign."

"It's very exciting...we are looking forward to Denver," Kaine said. "It's been very nice to be mentioned."

Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh and Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine have been told by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's campaign they will not be his vice presidential choice, NBC News reported on Friday quoting sources.

Speculation about Obama's choice has centered on Bayh, Kaine and Delaware Sen. Joseph Biden. Other names in the mix include Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and Texas Rep. Chet Edwards.
