Presidential candidate Barack Obama is changing venues ... and maybe views? And why is Sen. Jim Webb averse to a vice presidential nod from Obama, while former Sen. John Edwards seems to be lobbying for it?

Meanwhile, Republican presidential candidate John McCain has a new spin on the "Summer of Love," and both candidates' foreign policy views are being brought to the forefront by Iran's missile tests. NPR Political Editor Ken Rudin, who writes the Political Junkie column at NPR.org, talks about these topics and more.
