The Blue and the Gray

    Daniel Halper of the Weekly Standard drew on pool reports for his post this morning on President Obama's return trip to Hawaii after his fiscal-cliff-inspired vacation break [emphasis added]:

Obama "ended a seven-minute statement in the Press Briefing Room starting at about 11:27 p.m.," according to the pool report. "Dressed only in a blue suit, he walked across the South Lawn to board Marine One at 11:40 p.m." 
The pool report adds, "Marine One touched down at Andrews Air Force Base at 11:54 p.m. POTUS, still in a dark gray suit and light blue tie, walked quickly to Air Force One and dashed up the stairs.
    Maybe the president really IS a superhero after all.  Fourteen minutes and a helicopter ride later, and he's changed outfits!

    On the other hand, maybe it's the eyesight of one of the pool reporters.  Good thing these guys weren't reporting during the Civil War.
