Senator Obama is going to take a break from the campaign trail to go to Hawaii to visit his grandmother who is ill. Her condition must be serious indeed for him to take off in the last two weeks before the election.
I really hope she gets better soon. Despite his trumpeting her supposed racism before the public in order to excuse his time in Reverend Wright's church, I'm sure she's filled with pride and love to see the grandson she helped raise be on the cusp of being elected president.
I certainly hope that Obama loses the election. But whatever happens, may his grandmother recover to enjoy many years of her grandson's accomplishments.
