Mr. Obama Goes to the Game

According to Politico, the President broke "years of protocol" yesterday by leaving the White House without a press pool so he could see one of his daughters play soccer. Attending a child's game is such a time-honored protocol of parenthood, it feels only right that it should trump the traditions of the White House Press Corps. The only thing that's really too bad is that we read about his trip to the soccer field at all. (Though, crassly, the story is still good for Obama's brand as a guy who does what he can to maintain some normalcy for his kids even as President.)
