HONOLULU – Senator Barack Obama slowly walked up the steps of his campaign plane here on Friday evening, his suit coat slung over his shoulder, as he concluded his one-day visit home to Hawaii.
From touch-down on Thursday to take off on Friday, Mr. Obama spent nearly 22 hours on the ground in Honolulu visiting his ailing grandmother, Madelyn Dunham. He did not say how Mrs. Dunham was feeling and campaign aides did not disclose her condition, but he believes this could be his last time seeing her.
He had expressed worry in interviews that she may not live until Election Day, and explained that he suspended his campaign schedule to see her, and recalled how he had not been able to get to his mother’s bedside before she died. His grandmother’s 86th birthday is this Sunday.
During his brief visit here, he spent about seven hours with his grandmother during three separate trips to the apartment where she has lived for about four decades. A small group of reporters accompanied Mr. Obama to the Punahou Circle Apartments, but they waited outside as he visited Mrs. Dunham.
He did not speak to reporters on his trip and was filmed by camera crews only once, as he took a solitary walk along Young Street in his old neighborhood. His visit dominated Hawaii television news and newspapers.
After an overnight flight, he is scheduled to appear at three rallies on Saturday, the first of which is in Reno, Nev., followed by one in Las Vegas and an evening event in Albuquerque. .. NYT.
