Hey, Isn't That Resident Obama ...
By Hamil R. Harris
So much for presidential motorcades blocking D.C. streets and racing through red lights.
Motorists in Northwest had to be turning their heads along Connecticut Avenue this morning when "POTUS AND FLOTUS" traveled up the busy strip into Maryland to visit Sasha's school. That is the word from the White House pool report that said the driver obeyed the traffic lights as he transported the first couple to the lower campus of Sidwell Friends in Bethesda.
The driver obeyed all the traffic signals because "this was a non-official trip," the White House told Malia Rulon of Gannett News, the journalist who filed the pool report.
Here is part of Rulon's report:
The motorcade pulled out at 7:39 a.m. The motorcade proceeded north on Connecticut Avenue. Since this was a non-official trip, the motorcade stopped at every traffic light. The motorcade arrived at the Sidwell Friends Lower School at 8:15 a.m.
