Kailua, Hawaii


At roughly 2:18 p.m. local, President Obama departed his residence. The

pool joined the motorcade near the top of Kailuana Place, not far from the

exit of the neighborhood, and we are now rolling to a TBD location. (It is

probably worth noting here that Oregon State, coached by Michelle Obama’s

brother, Craig Robinson, is playing Akron in the Diamond Head Classic

basketball tournament scheduled to start at roughly 2:30 p.m. local



Your pool was unable to glimpse Obama in his SUV. As he left the

neighborhood, a gaggle of bathingsuit-clad kids gathered on the corner to

wave at the motorcade, and locals gathered on the first several dozen

yards of the main street (outside the security perimeter) to watch Obama

pass by.
