Spin Control

Obama headed for Seattle

President Barack Obama is headed for Seattle today, to raise campaign money and tie up traffic.

Make that tie up traffic even worse than normal in the city.

He's due into Boeing Field about 11:45 a.m., has a high-ticket private fundraiser in the city ($17,900 per ticket) for about 70 folks at a private residence, then a "more affordable" event for the masses -- $1,000 per -- at the Paramount Theater downtown.

At least for $1,000, folks will get to hear Dave Matthews.

Spin Control will be there, and the campaign says there will be Wi-Fi, so if they're right, we'll be live blogging the event.

Stay tuned.
