Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama
prepared to name his running mate, perhaps as early as Friday, from
a small field that included at least one dark horse.

Democratic officials said little-known Texas Rep. Chet Edwards
was one of the few Democrats whose background was checked by
Obama's campaign, and he was a finalist for the job.

Among others mentioned: Govs. Tim Kaine of Virginia and Kathleen
Sebelius of Kansas, as well as Sens. Joe Biden of Delaware and Evan
Bayh of Indiana.

Obama was to appear Saturday in Springfield, Ill., with his No.
2, and disclose the name to the world through a text message that
could be sent at any time before that event.
