Why Then All The Campaigning If...

Rumors are swirling around the Internet that election won, or not, the first lady, her mother - Marian Robinson - and daughters Sasha and Malia may be moving to the beautiful state of Hawaii.

While the first lady indicated that she loves the Chicago Bears when asked what her favorite football team is, she may not love its wintry weather as much.

The Obamas have vacationed several times in Hawaii since President Obama was elected and have found the state to be a welcome retreat from the cold, winter weather of Chicago and the Nation's Capital.

Unconfirmed reports indicate that Mrs. Robinson first gave an impromptu reference to the family's decision to put their Hyde Park home on the market and move to Hawaii in 2013.

Several sources further indicate that the Obamas may have already found a house - to the tune of $35 million.

Whether it will be a vacation home, or a full-time permanent residence, inquiring minds want to know why the planned move to Hawaii, especially during a close election campaign.

Many questions remain unanswered, like:

Will the move take place after the girls finish out the school year at Sidwell Friends were they currently attend?   If the president is re-elected, does this mean the first lady will no longer reside in the Nation's Capital, along side her husband?  (Certainly her mother wouldn't move to Hawaii without the rest of the family).

The first lady, making an unscheduled stop in Spotsylvania County at a local YWCA last Thursday, after being asked by a youth where her family would live if her husband was not re-elected said, "We'll figure that out."
