President Obama and Vice President Biden are in Kokomo, Indiana today. As per usual, the duo took some unannounced detours along the way to their scheduled event. One was at an area elementary school, and pool reporter Helene Cooper from the NY Times notes it was quite the scene.
"Second unannounced stop... Sycamore Elementary, where around 300 deliriously excited and screaming kids lined up outside. Did pool mention screaming? Think Michael Jackson in Tokyo type screaming. ‘Omigod he touched me! He touched me!' yelled one little girl in pink. ‘He's right up there!' yelled one boy.
The president worked the rope line, grinning, as wave after wave of kids grabbed his hand, fell back, then rushed up to grab his hand again, double dipping."
