Obama Has No Boundaries-Chicago Funeral
WASHINGTON -- First lady Michelle Obama plans to attend Saturday’s funeral in Chicago for 15-year-old slaying victim Hadiya Pendleton, according to a White House official who asked not to be named.

Pendleton, an honor student at King College Prep, was fatally shot last week about a mile from the Obamas’ Kenwood home. A majorette with the school band, she had participated in inaugural festivities near Washington about a week before her death.

Considering the circumstances--she performed for him just weeks before and was from his home town--I see no issue with him or michelle attending the funeral as a sign of respect.

This is a special circumstance.

However, if it was turned in ANY way into a 'rally' for gun control, then it's very different situation.

It's tragic that her life was cut short. But, she did not do a command performance for the coronation. She was in a marching band and her death has already been used by the media to point out how we need to do something about guns. This is a photo-op, plain and simple.
