Obama Solicited on Golf Course

The Secret Service may not be able to intercept shoes, but they can get in between an informational DVD.
HP: An interesting political moment occurred Monday as Barack Obama was set to play golf with a group of friends.

A couple approached the President-elect's security detail and begged them to deliver a set of "informational" DVDs on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The group delivering the package expressed sympathy for the Palestinian people and concern that Obama's approach to the conflict would mirror that of George W. Bush.

Unfortunately for them, the Secret Service refused to deliver the box. And Obama went on to play his round of golf -- after hitting some poor range balls and instructing the press to stop watching him swing.

The Honolulu Advertiser tells a little about Obama's swing today and perhaps the media is getting a bit nutty covering Obama's vacation.
