For Obama, Roundabout Path to Convention

By Anne E. Kornblut
CHESTER, Va. -- The Obama campaign is gearing up for a busy weekend: he'll presumably announce his vice presidential pick in the next 48 hours, then head out on the road to several battleground states on the way into Denver.

On his travel schedule: Eau Claire, Wis., on Sunday; the Quad Cities area of Iowa on Monday; Kansas City, Mo., on Tuesday; and Billings, Mont., on Wednesday. He will head into Denver later on Wednesday, picking up the toward the end of the Democratic convention.

No word yet on where his vice presidential pick will go with him, beyond Springfield, Ill., on Saturday. Earlier in the campaign, advisers suggested it was likely the vice presidential nominee would travel apart from the presumptive nominee for a little bit before making a separate arrival in Denver.

Oh my. Obama hates children because he supports a woman's right to choose? Holy cow. How 'bout he loves children, and doesn't want to see more unwanted, abused children in the world? The republican's want to have it both ways. They want to take away a woman's right to choose, and they also want to teach abstinence, (which is fine) but don't want to teach young people about how to AVOID pregnancy if they ARE sexually active. I whole heartedly agree that abortion is a horrible means of birth control. I don't think I could ever have one, but I also believe no one should be able to tell me I can not have one. If you don't want women to have abortions, have birth control available! If you are a man, DON'T HAVE SEX WITHOUT A CONDOM! How many or you out there are sick of hearing MEN say no woman should be able to have an abortion?

what a horrible comment from Susan about the Obama family. I haven't heard an unknd word about those children nor parents. You are one sick "oreo". You don't know those people. It has got to be one of the most hateful comments I've read. You may disagree with his politics but you know nothing of him as a father. Crawl quickly into a hole and maybe your family will politely cover you with dirt before their friends realize that they know you. Good night.

Obama hates children.

Look at his voting record on abortion, and contrast it with how uncomfortable he looked when his children were speaking in their only interview on Access Hollywood. His children had no respect for him, and he looked like he wanted to smack them.

In the spirit of bi-partisanship, perhaps the McCains will invite the Obama to spend one night with them in their homes before the election. That'll take over a week.
