Curses, foiled again!

So the Superheroes got word that Barack Obama would be speaking at the Mayflower hotel, which is just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Superhero Lair.  Needless to say, we quickly made our way to the hotel with the hope of catching a lingering glimpse of the future president.

After an approximate 45-minute wait outside the hotel, the Superheroes were duped into thinking that the eagle had left the building and some of us decided to go home.  But my partner-in-crime Ripley and I decided to stay.  And our patience paid off.  While we were waiting, a WaPo photog told us that it was all a decoy and Renegade, as the Secret Service likes to call him, was still inside.

After a few relieved and elated minutes, Ripley and I began to wonder if we were at an exit that would allow us to catch a glimpse of Renegade or anyone associated with the campaign as they left the hotel.  Uh oh.  Running ensued.  Once we zigged and zagged through the crowds, Ripley and I realized that we should have stayed where we were because just as we returned, we found that the bird had flown the coop.

Where is he?

Where is he?

Darn!  We didn’t even get to see Reggie Love or Robert Gibbs or David Axelrod or even the baggage carrier.  Oh well, better luck next time.  All we got was this picture of the Obama press corps leaving.
