In a surprise move, President Obama today announced that he will not attend the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, in August. This would mark the first time a presidential candidate has missed the convention at which he was to be nominated.
This move, described as “the Nuclear Option,” comes as a number of other prominent Democrats, including West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin and Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill, have also chosen to skip the convention in order to focus on what promise to be difficult reelection campaigns.
Said the President: “I have a lot of work to do for the people, and they need me to do it. It’s important that I so what they need me to do and I won’t let them down. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to make this putt to save par.”
