Pool Report 1
Abdon Pallasch
Chicago Sun-Times.
Saturday, Nov. 22
No news.
The 6 a.m. call time allowed poolers to glimpse the pre-dawn red sky above Lake Michigan as the press bus rolled down Lake Shore Drive toward President-elect Obama's house in Hyde Park/Kenwood.

At 9:02 a.m., Obama's SUV pulled out of his driveway bound for the Regents Park apartment complex where his friend and periodic campaign employee Mike Signator lives and where Obama worked out at the gym for 78 minutes from 9:07 to 10:25.

The temperature in the WIndy City is a colder-early-than -usual 27 degrees but Obama was presumably only outside long enough to go from door to car (the line of sight to the building's entrance is now blocked for security purposes) and only his White Sox capped head was visible in the SUV.
His SUV pulled back onto his home street by 10:30 and we are holding nearby.

This is such a joke. You are trivializing an important time in history - when a total scammer can buy an election (with help, of course, from the media) and we sit here commenting on what he has for lunch or what kind of jockstrap he wears. I guess this is what we get for allowing such superficiality to rule the election. What a shame. Then again, all of this press is controlled by Hobama, so it is his fault.

STILL CRYING OVER SPILLED MILK!
WHY DON'T YOU MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIFE, AND ALLOW
THE MAN TO GOVERN, BUT FIRST LET HIM TAKE OVER
THE OFFICE!
BUY SOME KLEENEX AND WIPE YOUR EYES!
YOU CALLED THE MAN A SCAMMER, YOU NEED TO WASH
YOUR MOUTH OUT WITH SOAP, 2 TIMES!
THE MAN OUTSCHOOLED YOUR BOY, FACE FACTS!
