Obama ducks press event

Jeanette Colville
Barack Obama will become the first president to skip the Gridiron Dinner since Grover Cleveland held the office. He begs off the March 21st event, noting that his daughters' spring break will begin, and the family plans to travel, probably to Chicago. How nice he has a job which allows him to take so much time off.

Either:

1. He is scared to try to come up with a humorous delivery at the Gridiron Dinner, sans teleprompter.

2. Big Michelle DEMANDS dinner in Chicago.

3. He is just too tired for another speech after all the parties.

4.  Too many of the attendees are white and not black, or have already been paid back for their campaign support and are no longer useful.
