Is it presidential peek-a-boo?
The photo was snapped in Baltimore last week. According to the White House, LaHood, a Republican member of the Cabinet, was acting as if he was “a blocking back” as he led Obama into a meeting with GOP House leaders. Maybe they had Super Bowl fever. It's possible the president is auditioning for the Redskins in case this whole "leader of the free world" thing doesn't work out...
But we’re skeptical. It looks suspiciously like an impromptu conga line, or perhaps a game of legislative leapfrog. Of course, the most likely explanation is the simplest -- the president was just trying to hide from all those waiting Republicans.
If you were in his shoes, wouldn’t you?
