Despite Libyan Crisis, Obama Campaign Plans to Stay on Schedule - NYTimes.com The president is still scheduled to start a Western campaign swing Wednesday night, with a rally here in Las Vegas and another in Colorado on Thursday. Mr. Obamas aides indicated that he would have reconsidered his trip had the violence in Libya and Egypt spilled into a second day in a major way. But with any follow-up protests remaining relatively modest, the president will monitor events from Air Force One as he makes his way here, aides said. Protests have spread to Yemen and Tunisia. It's just modest, no reason to be concerned. He has his priorities in order. Only four Americans killed so far, no reason to overreact.
