Obama flew to Dover Air Base (in a Blackhawk, so don't worry about the gas) to meet the bodies of the fallen from Afghanistan. He met with the families in the chapel and particpated in the ceremony aboard the plane of debarking the bodies. Maybe getting a real feeling of what this war is about is what he needs to make a better decision about what we will do in this war. Isolating yourself in the Whitehouse was a safe way for some Presidents never to have to deal with the real cost of war at the individual and personal level. Now I will wait for the attacks on him for using this for political purposes.
