It's a campaign stunt, his campaign should pay for it.

Since when, has Obama act like the senator, the people of Illinois elected him for. He walks around Washington, not on the people of Illinois behalf, but for his own. His campaign should pay for the trip, it's not like they can't afford too. I doubt if he would be going, if McCain hadn't made it an issue.
