Obama did something that didn't surprise me at all. No leader turns over the stage to a stand-in and goes off to be with his wife. Obama introduced former President Clinton yesterday at a press conference then made some excuse that Michelle was waiting on him so he had to go. Guess the rest of the country can wait on whatever it was he had to do elsewhere. No leader turns over the reigns of power to someone else unless he's physically unable to function. He may not have realized it but symbolically that's what he did. Correct me if I'm wrong on this. Btw....didn't it seem that when Former President Clinton was speaking at the podium things weren't quite so hopeless??? Just asking.
