For those who actually have to work today and can't attend Barack Obama or Chelsea Clinton's appearances around town today, fret not: We'll have folks at both Clinton's speech this morning at the University of Texas at Dallas and Obama's Reunion Arena rally. They'll file throughout the course of the morning and early afternoon, with photos and videos and even ... whatchacallem ... words. No word if Schutze will attend Mike Huckabee's speech at 7:30 tonight in the Conference Center at the Spring Creek Campus of Collin County Community College -- though it's highly doubtful. --Robert Wilonsky
Update: For those planning on attending the Obama shindig at Reunion, which will start at noon with doors opening at 10:30 a.m., looks like you'd best hustle.
