Sources: Bayh, Kaine out for vice president

On a day and night of political suspense, Delaware Sen. Joe Biden emerged as a leading contender Friday to become Barack Obama's vice presidential pick as two running mate rivals learned they had been eliminated.
Virginia Gov. Tom Kaine spread word he had been ruled out and Sen. Evan Bayh of Indiana was told he was not Obama's choice, according to party officials.
The normally talkative Biden maintained a low profile as associates said they believed _ but did not know _ that he would be tapped. They added they had been asked to stand by in case their help was needed.
