I am little dissapointed that Obama is NOT at the world economic summit! I would love to know what ya'll think. I voted McCain but I am REALLY trying to give the man the benifit of the doubt. He sent surragates. Is this what he is going to do always? And son't tell me he isn't president yet, he will be in about 8 weeks and he could hit the ground running if he was there!! What do ya'll think??Answer Question

He's not the president yet and he's still putting his staff together. At this point it's important for him to put his staff together. He can't go into the White House with an incomplete staff - then he will an be ineffective president.
Also, he sent representatives most likely to listen and inform him of what was discussed so that he will be up to speed.
If he were to attend it would be confusing and possibly threatening to the other world leaders there. Again, he is not the president yet. Bush is still the president. No telling what negative message his presence could possibly send to the other attendees.
Finally, maybe he wasn't invited.
