WASHINGTON--Hat tip to ABC News Sunlen Miller who has the scoop that the Obama family will be spending Easter Sunday in a tropical location. The Obama schedule has no events from Sunday to Tuesday, with Obama starting Saturday in Medford, Oregon for a town hall meeting and then flying to Chicago.
Jetting off to a warm climate.--and away from the horrible who needs it snow blizzard hitting Chicago--is a reasonable decision. And it also avoids an awkward situation for the Obama's--whether to attend Easter services at Trinity United, where the Rev. Jeremiah Wright is the senior pastor and whose inflammatory comments surfacing on video tapes triggered a crisis in the Obama campaign.
Miller, an embed who travels constantly with the Obama campaign, said "sources familiar with the Obama's plans say the Illinois Democrat is expected to go on a tropical vacation with the most likely bet appearing to be St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Obama, whose campaign will not confirm his plans, is expected to leave Chicago on Sunday morning and will return either on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. His next campaign stop will be Wednesday in Greensboro, N.C. ''
