White House: Obama Was AWOL On DC Public Schools

I guess I'm  not the only one to note the President's striking absence from the DC education debate and mayoral campaign in recent weeks:

Quotes2 "He's intervened in a New York Islamic center dispute, in a Boston cop dispute. It'd be nice to intervene for kids in D.C., for which the federal government has some responsibility. And I think this is where Barack Obama could use his influence in a very healthy way, and we're waiting." -- Wall Street Journal columnist Bill McGurn

Though to be fair Obama did talk about DC schools yesterday on the Today show -- after the primary was over.  Previous post:  How Obama & Duncan Abandoned Rhee
