when mccain did arrive, it was with wife cindy in tow. my first thought was, "why is cindy mccain there?" and wolf blitzers first thought? "why isn't michelle obama there? where is michelle obama?" to his credit, msnbc's david shuster followed "why isn't michelle obama there?" with, "or maybe i should say why is cindy mccain there?"
think michelle obama's absence won't be mentioned elsewhere? wait.
UPDATE 4:42 pm – shuster is now reporting that michelle obama was in chicago with the couples children, but was invited.
