In a report by Livesteez, Obama has temporarily halted his campaign:
Presidential candidate Barack Obama will leave the campaign trail for two days this week to visit his seriously ill grandmother in Hawaii, the Democratic candidate’s spokesman, Robert Gibbs, said Monday. “Senator Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, has always been one of the most important people in his life. Along with his mother and his grandfather, she raised him in Hawaii from the time he was born until the moment he left for college. As he said at the Democratic Convention, she poured everything she had into him,” said Gibbs in a statement. “Recently, his Grandmother has become ill, and in the last few weeks, her health has deteriorated to the point where her situation is very serious. It is for that reason that Senator Obama has decided to change his schedule on Thursday and Friday so that he can see her and spend some time with her.” The campaign is set to resume on Saturday.
Poor thing has probably waited her entire life to see her grandson realize his dreams. Hopefully, she will get a chance to not only see him become President of the U.S., but to also see him make some very pivotal changes during his presidency as well. Keep the Obama family in your thoughts and prayers.
