More evidence Obama knows there will be a Democrat bloodbath at the polls: he has changed his schedule and is flying away for 12 whole days, just two days after election, and is going to the other side of the world. Those recriminations are not going to be fun, and its best to be an honored guest in places that feel honored to have a presidential visit. Chidanand Rajghatta reports in the Times of India: The White House has advanced President Obama's visit to India by two days, according to sources. He will now be landing in India on the night of November 5, flying most likely into Mumbai first.
The second leg of the trip will be the twice-postponed trip to Indonesia, the country where the young Barry Obama was adopted by his Indonesian stepfather and acquired the name Soetoro and possibly Indonesian nationality and the religion of Islam (he was registered in school as a Muslim).
He will also visit Japan and South Korea. Presumably a visit with the Emperor of Japan is not on the schedule, to avoid the embarrassment of will-he-or-won't-he speculation over bowing low to the monarch whose father led Japan to war with the US.
