The thinking is that the vast majority of voters make up their minds by incumbency or party as soon as the candidates are known and the undecided don't make up their minds until the last ten days before the election. So June and July should be slack months. But today the news machine, in both professional and amateur forms, demands something new to discuss every day. So the VP selection process becomes headline news just to fill the time.
