On Saturday, presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama chose the innovative approach of announcing his Vice Presidential running mate via a text message to supporters. In an effort to entrust the message to the most experienced text and IM messenger possible, the Illinois Senator enlisted 8th grader Kylie Decker-Morrison of Rapid City, South Dakota to compose the historic announcement. Below appears the entire text, as sent from Obama campaign headquarters Saturday morning:
