As the three network news anchors follow Barack Obama to the middle east, the squawking heads have been debating whether it is “newsworthy.” Overboard coverage of a trip? Media feeding frenzy?

Not necessarily.

I think (I’ve got the Kevlar on) the net-weights may be there for the same reason Hillary stayed in the race so long: It just may be a case of “just in case.”

By the way, J Mac’s “astonishment” at Obama’s never having been to Afghanistan astonished this writer. It seems J Mac’s “stunned and amazed” cells were on vacation when GW Bush took the reins of the world’s last superpower without ever having left its borders. His first foreign trip? To Mexico.
