Barak Obama's grandmother has died. My heart goes out to him and his family. Win or lose tomorrow, the timing could not have been worse. This should be a personal, private time for any family, and instead it will be pushed into the international spotlight. Some may pass it off as the cost of fame and power, but no one is really prepared for something like this.

If we can't be imposed upon to show sympathy, let's at least show some tact and taste. If anything can be considered "off limits" in politics, this should be one.
