Life's a picnic for the Obamas


INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (CNN) Stepping on to the tarmac in Indianapolis, Indiana, for a day of campaigning together, Barack Obama, wife Michelle, and daughters Sasha and Malia, will host a series of events together Saturday– including a picnic gathering in Noblesville and an ice cream social at a roller skating rink in Lafayette.

They'll also make a stop at a house built by Sen. Obama's great great great grandfather in Kempton.

    I for one can't wait to see this nice American family in the White House. That's what America is all about, opportunity, hope. Let's live up to our American Ideals. Obama is more like me than Hillary Clinton and I"m white. HRC is a woman of privilege. He's not a man of privilege. Simple as that!!! He's all American and will make a great President. GO OBAMA!!!!!

    Clinton supporters will attack this somehow.

    CNN, where is your story on Paul vs Clinton?

    Funny how I can't find anything on it when I do a CNN search for it. I can only find outside links. Funny.

    What a great day for the kids to be able to participate and have some fun. The children deserve to have a this time to hang out with their parents and do some fun stuff.

    Someone with a set of family values, integrity, and dignity. The goons will be all over this when they wake up from the dark. I am so proud of Obama for setting a set of standards for the political campaign because I am so sick of politics as usual. Saying anything to win. I can't believe that some of Hillary supporters call Obama the attacker when Hillary attacks him and he responds. This says alot about how malicious our country can be. Did Rev. Wright really have it all wrong??

    Im sure the y have nice kids but I cant shake the feeling that these two are phony. Michelle more so. You know the media is always polling Pres Clinton's negative numbers, I wonder what Michelle's are, pretty high I'll bet.

    They are just like us... unless you are an elitist, then you can vote for the 110 million-dollar woman.

    I am so happy for the Obama's they are very nice people painted as bad. See beyond the pundits The media won't go against the Clintons as what they have done to the Obama family. They have gone against the very thing Barack Obama is attempting to bing back to this great country. He wants to get it together baby!! The media and others are destroying what would be a great thing. Why not a least let him have a chance this is a very brilliant, prudent, vibrant young fullof energy kind of person. Lets not get in the way of what would be a great President, I present to you BARACK OBAMA 08.
