chief Obama draws popular basketball coach for Virginia rally
President Barack Obama re election campaign rally in Virginia on Saturday will feature a speaker who could bethe most popular man in the battleground state. Senate, who will also be at Virginia Commonwealth University for the event. Senators Mark Warner and Jim Webb, will not be there.
Smart is likely to be the event biggest draw the president and first lady Michelle Obama,[url=http://www.secadis.fr/category/air-jordan-7/]air jordan 7[/url].
Obama isa huge basketball fan who cheers for his hometown Chicago Bulls andtook British Prime Minister David Cameron to the NCAAcollege basketballtournamentin March,[url=http://www.francebientraitance.fr/prix-louboutin/]prix louboutin[/url].
Obama also releases his own bracket of picks every year for the 64 team college championship tournament although his picks have not reflected a great deal of faith inSmart team,[url=http://www.ngcommit.fr/tn-air-max-pas-cher/]tn air max pas cher[/url].
When VCU made its shock run to the Four semi finals in 2011,[url=http://www.ngcommit.fr/nike-tn-trainers/]nike tn trainers[/url], Obama picked them to lose in the first round. This year, the president did better, correctly selecting the mid major school,[url=http://www.ngcommit.fr/nike-tn-homme/]nike tn homme[/url], a 12th seed, to upset number 5 Wichita State in their first tournament game. Unfortunately for Smart, Obama also correctly forecast his team fate in the second round a loss to Indiana.

Hah. Huge stretch indeed. I follow sports alot and had to read the article to remember who he was. Set aside what end of the political spectrum one is on for a moment, Shaka is a great coach and did some remarkable things with VCU basketball last year. But to say he somehow brings clout to politics anywhere in VA except possibly on the VCU campus is more than a huge stretch. Had VCA won the tournament, material influence in Richmond? Possibly Coaches, athletes, actors etc should stick with what they do well. Richmond is 69% white, and 19% black. VCU over 32,[url=http://www.espace-tpe.fr/category/louboutin-paris/]louboutin paris[/url],000 students 56% white and 17% black (10% Asian, etc). All VCU presidents have been white, including the current one,[url=http://www.espace-tpe.fr/category/prix-louboutin/]prix louboutin[/url], Michael Rao. (His father is of subcontinental Indian heritage.) Most likely President Obama is visiting the state capital of Richmond because it the seat of state government, and is easy to access, being more centrally located in the state,[url=http://www.francebientraitance.fr/bottes-louboutin/]bottes louboutin[/url], and over 80% of its students live in Va. Meanwhile,[url=http://www.ngcommit.fr/air-max-tn-pas-cher/]air max tn pas cher[/url], Northern Va. (NOVA) is already plenty aware of all of DC politics (in that most of the fed gov lives there),[url=http://www.campingterreferme.fr/converse-blanche-pas-cher.html]converse blanche pas cher[/url], with its population having ample means and easy access to attend any governmental event. An urban university as large as VCU provides an excellent GOTV opportunity to inspire Va borderline voters and to push for voter outreach, esp. since it a state university that draws students from throughout the state. Perhaps you were thinking of Virginia STATE University, in Petersburg, which IS largely and traditionally an Af Am university (initially devoted primarily to agricultural degrees). But VCU is a very different university, with its arts and humanities on an academic campus in a historic neighorhood,[url=http://www.spagnoloinregole.it/hogan-outlet.html]hogan outlet[/url], while its vast medical,[url=http://www.francebientraitance.fr/escarpins-louboutin/]escarpins louboutin[/url], hospital and research campus sits right across from the state government buildings. Thus, it actually does provide the ideal opportunity for any political candidate or visiting dignitaries, which is why many have made the urban university a necessary stop.
