Obama Suspending Campaign To See Ill Grandmother

Barack Obama is suspending campaign activities Thursday and Friday to see his seriously ill 85-year-old grandmother in Hawaii. Obama will miss rallies on those days in Iowa and Wisconsin, and will resume campaigning on Saturday.

“In the last few weeks her health has deteriorated to the point where her situation is very serious,” (spokesman Robert) Gibbs told reporters aboard Obama’s campaign plane.

His grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, “has always been one of the most important people in his life,” Gibbs said. “Along with his mother and his grandfather, she raised him in Hawaii from the time he was born to the moment he left for college.”

I wish Sen. Obama and his grandmother all the best.
