So what was Obama doing at 12th and Pennsylvania today? Vice President shopping?

Protective pool report from Perry Bacon, Washington Post...

No major news. The Senator went to the Russell Senate building in the
morning to tape appearances with the three network orning shows. After 9
a.m., the pool headed to a large office building on 12th and
Pennsylvania . The candidate and David Axelrod went into a unmarked door
on the side of the building on E Street that read "Tenant Entrance
Only."

Much of the building houses Covington and Burling, the workplace of Eric
Holder, one of the members of Obama's vice-presidential search team,
although Obama aides would not say what the meeting was about or if he
was meeting with Holder. They spent more than two hours inside. Obama
walked out that same side door, holding his briefcase. When a reporter
shouted "who were you meeting with" he smiled and replied "I'm not
telling you."

He then headed to the Senate for votes. As the motorcade stopped,
Axelrod and campaign manager David Plouffe stepped out of cars and
didn't head into the Senate with the candidate. They also declined to
answer questions about the meetings they had attended.

GOOD ANSWER!
HE WILL TELL YOU HIS RUNNING MATE IN DUE TIME!
STOP FOLLOWING THE MAN AROUND, GIVE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT ROOM TO
TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS!

Stop following the guy around, shouting Phil? He ain't chairman mao, he's our potential prez, and I damn well want the news media following the guy around thank you very much.
And stop calling people racist who disagree with you. It's not only unseemly. It's stupid.
And yes, given what Jackson did this time (isn't there a nursing home nearby?) and what Imus gets attacked for, well, there is a double standard. Calling people racist for noticing crap like the 'racist racist' schoolyard epithet the campaign used way too often during the primary AT THIS TIME IS BEYOND DUMB! (Pardon me for shouting--wanted to make sure you got the message, Shouting Phil.)

THAT'S MR. SHOUTING PHIL TO YOU, DON'T BRING IMUS INTO THIS, HE
COULDN'T CARRY JESSE JACKSON'S JOCK STRAP!
THAT'S WHY FOX NEWS IS SO BAD, MOST IF NOT ALL OF THEIR PEOPLE
COME FROM THE RADIO, WHERE YOU CAN SAY ADVERSE STUFF AND GET AWAY
WITH IT, NOW THEY'RE ON THE TELEVISION WHERE YOU CAN PUT A FACE
TO THE VOICE AND BOOM YOU GET IGNORANCE! IT'S THEIR WAY OR THE
HIGHWAY, I DON'T CARE IF YOU DISAGREE WITH ME, BUT I'LL CHECK YOU
IF YOU PUT SOMETHING IGNORANT ON THIS BLOG!
THAT'S WHY YOU HAVE GIVEN ME A TITLE, YOU RESPECT WHAT I SAY!
