We interrupt your regularly-scheduled political mudslinging with the following from our sports department:
Dale Earnhardt Jr. on Wednesday will announce his intent to move to Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet in 2008, multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the negotiations told ESPN.com Tuesday on condition of anonymity.
Hendrick Motorsports declined comment, and e-mails and calls sent to Earnhardt's representation were not returned. A news conference was scheduled for 11 a.m. Wednesday to officially announce the deal.
Kelley Earnhardt Elledge, who has handled contract negotiations for her brother, declined to comment on the report.
Hendricks has won 10 of the 15 events held so far this year and I don't think it's good for the sport to make them even more powerful than they are today. The only thing that might make this interesting would be the rivalry between Gordon and Earnhardt, which could be the greatest intra-team rancor since Prost and Senna both drove for Formula 1 McLaren.
