    I know Biden is there, but why isn't the President there?

    2. He gave the eulogy. I'm sure he doesn't want to upstage the Kennedys. nt

    17. oh, of course! I wish Chris or Keith had thought of that

    I hope they bring this possibility up later. I'm sure you're right--the POTUS and VP together in one public place would be a security nightmare.

    He's a little tied up at the moment. You see, he learned from Katrina that a president is expected to be on the seashore during hurricane threats and hold their arms up Moses-likie to ward off the evil winds. I'm sure he'll be along any minute to ressurrect Senator Lazarus.
