Barack Obama will be off the campaign trial for two days to visit his ailing grandmother in Hawaii. "Robert Gibbs told reporters Monday that Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, who helped raise him, was released from the hospital late last week. But he said her health had deteriorated "to the point where her situation is very serious." "It seemed likely that she was close to death, as Gibbs said that "everyone understands the decision that Sen. Obama is making." We can talk about how this effects the campaign another time for now let's all wish Obama's Grandmother a full recovery.
P.S. I've seen this on several conservative sites and so far I only saw one person make a stupid comment about Obama's Grandmother. However if you feel inclined to make said stupid remark please go elsewhere to make it.
