Obama, Michelle departing Chicago: bound for Mexico, Oregon

| No Comments

President Barack Obama wrapped up his weekend in Chicago and departed Sunday early evening from O'Hare Airport on Air Force One for the G-20 economic Summit in Los Cabos, Mexico.

First Lady Michelle Obama headed to Oregon Sunday where she will deliver a graduation address Sunday at Oregon State University where her brother, Craig is the men's basketball coach.

It's not official but her mom Marian Robinson and daughters Malia and Sasha are likely with her: the family--including Mrs. Robinson--were all in Chicago for the Saturday wedding of Laura Jarrett, the daughter of Senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett.

From the pool report: "POTUS left his house in Kenwood at 6 pm headed to helos. As motorcade left, neighbors and others lines parts of the street, waving good-bye and snapping photos.

"Ten minutes later POTUS and pool were wheels up from a lake-side park for the helo ride to O'Hare. Lake Michigan was looking Tahoe blue for the occasion. Really lovely.

"The president boarded Air Force One at 6:30, wearing navy jacket, brown pants and no tie. At 6:36, we rolling. Mexico bound."
