The New York Times blog The Caucus reports on a bizarre delay in an Obama rally in Iowa:
It turns out that Mr. Obama apparently was flying in from Chicago, and blustery winds in Cedar Rapids delayed his plane. But that explanation was of little solace to Mr. Lammer, who seemed far angrier than his wife at Mr. Obama’s tardiness...
Update: The travel delay, as it turns out, was not because of winds. While they were strong, the Obama campaign plane apparently flew to Des Moines by mistake. So the plane fired back up and jetted to Cedar Rapids. Because of his tardiness, Mr. Obama lingered longer than usual to take extra questions from the crowd.
I know campaigns are chaotic, but how do you fly to the wrong city by mistake?
Update 11/8 11:32 AM: The New York Times has a report with more details on the mistake, but it never explains how it happened. Did the pilot get the wrong itinerary?
