President Barack Obama is giving a speech on his jobs program right now
at Abraham Lincoln High School in Denver. It's a hot day and helicopters are circling and people in the crowd are reportedly passing out from exhaustion
. It's going to be a big news story. Yet the press badges issued for his fundraising trip around the American West would seem to place him somewhere in Wyoming not Colorado. The Washington mix up won't come as any surprise to politically disillusioned westerners used to people in the nation's capital breezily getting everything wrong.
