Obama Sighting?

In yesterday's post, I mentioned that Michelle Obama was scheduled to appear at the Library of Congress for a Read Across America event sponsored by the National Education Association. Sadly, they had to cancel due to the snow.

So much for "flinty Chicago toughness", eh Mr. President? Funny, I managed to get my kid to school.

I hope they reschedule. All kidding aside, the Obamas are regularly out and about in Washington, so the chance for your average tourist to see the President have gone up from "negligible" to "slim".

Well, Tim, I hate to rain on your parade but I had my Obama siting about two weeks after the inauguration. He went by in a car on Pennsylvania Ave., NW, by the East Building of the National Gallery of Art. I was just trying to cross the street.

A good indication of an impending sighting is police stopping traffic. The first car in the motorcade is a decoy. The President is always in the second car.

Unfortunately, Obama didn't wave at me. For that I will have to wait for a second (up close) sighting.

My favorite Obama sighting was when he was a Senator and my tour group was in his way when he was late to get to a vote at the Capitol. He showed a lot more class than I would have trying to get through the kids.
