Barack Obama’s Priority list.
Currently, it’s like this:
Visit wounded soldiers at Landstuhl.Make campaign speech at German Victory Column in Berlin*.
I could live with #1 and #4. #3 makes me grit my teeth a little at the proxy embarrassment, but schedules are schedules.
PS: That last sentence showed up that way as a formatting quirk, but, you know? I quite like it, so it stays.
*”1:42 p.m.: SPIEGEL ONLINE has learned that Obama has cancelled a planned short visit to the Rammstein and Landstuhl US military bases in the southwest German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. The visits were planned for Friday. “Barack Obama will not be coming to us,” a spokesperson for the US military hospital in Landstuhl announced. “I don’t know why.” Shortly before the same spokeswoman had announced a planned visit by Obama.”
