Obama went down to Georgia, he was looking for… someone… anyone, I guess. Read:
President Obama makes his first Atlanta appearance since his inauguration.
The President will fly into town Monday morning.
If you think this will be a time for Democrats running for office to rally around the chief executive- -you probably haven’t been following the campaigns this summer.
Former Governor Roy Barnes will not be available to meet Mr. Obama. The Democratic gubernatorial candidate will be somewhere in Georgia- – far from Atlanta.
OK, so maybe Georgia isn’t a huge surprise. But keep an eye on the rest of the President’s travel schedule over the next three months. If he avoids, or is avoided in, central Pennsylvania or upstate New York, then the Democrats are in really bad shape.
Not in as bad a shape as Obama, but still.
