at the press conference they said he had a previous engagement in hawaii but that he would've liked to have been there and that he supports obama
Hmmm, seems odd. But I believe that's what ya saw.
One of those things I'd like to see/hear first hand.

Well that would be #1 short notice, yes? I'm just curious that's all.
The whole prior engagement things is suspect. Despite how it was sold to the public I don't think this was decided 1 night and put together the next morning. This sort of thing takes weeks if not months. Sure, maybe it hinged on him doing well in across the early primary states.
But in reality nobody could convince me this really came together last week sometime.. Try to get 1 lawyer to draw up on contract. Now make it 15 lawyers and politicians and some politicians who were lawyers and we all know how bad this planning had to be with a venue, sound, musicians (needed a core) ticket sales, security vendors, advertising, publicity, broadcasting, endorsement, the proper spin, the proper look, the proper feel.
This was a major production and planned... Hence not buying Billy can't make it.
