CHICAGO–Here’s the latest political advance calendar for White House hopeful Sen. Brack Obama (D-Ill.) and wife Michelle.

Readers guide: Please note the campaign only lists a selection of political events it deems in its interests to reveal; the weeks ahead schedule does not include any events related to Obama’s senatorial duties.

How to decode: When a listing notes a city the candidate or his wife will be in with the phrase “no public events,” that is the clue that the Obama’s are in a town for a fund-raiser that they are not eager to generate press on.

Some fund-raisers are sometimes listed; some are not. For example, on Monday Obama has a fund-raiser in Chicago; on Thursday Michelle Obama is the star of a fund-raiser for her husband in Washington. That’s a clue that she will probably be there all day since Obama and his Democratic rivals are at a presidential forum at Howard University in Washington that evening.
