In what may be the first example, I am going to give President Obama credit for doing something classy. I am not going to question his motives. You may even notice that for probably the first time I also included the name of the office which he holds.
Late last night Mr Obama went to Dover Air Base and rendered honors to some of our fallen service members who were arriving home for the last time.
Mr Obama, who was wearing a dark coat, was taken to the base, 100 miles (161km) from the White House, by the Marine One helicopter to greet the C-17 aircraft that had brought back the dead.
He boarded the plane and watched as a military chaplain prayed for those who had passed away.
