Pool report

Mystery Pool Report

After your poolers pulled away from Montana Technical College, home of the

Diggers, at around 5:20, the bus made its way up toward old, historic Butte

and pulled up to the Clark Chateau Museum, a mansion from Buttes glory


The pool was told repeatedly that Sen. Obama was merely doing a video shoot

for the campaigns new media department, a routine operation. But Aliesh,

hired by Essence to do makeup, tipped your pool off that Obama was

accompanied by a famous film maker, as part of a film shoot for the

Democratic National Committee and the convention. Obama entered the mansion

at 5:45. He re-emerged at 6:43, with a stylish film maker in tow and a crew

carrying a film camera, NOT the small digital cameras.

Jen Psaki still maintains nothing is abnormal, but the filmmaker is Davis

Guggenheim, the Academy Award-winning director of An Inconvenient Truth.

His father, four-time Academy Award winner Charles Guggenheim, chronicled

John F. Kennedy. Credit Kim Chipman from Bloomberg with her brilliant

Googling prowess.

Davis Guggenheim spoke briefly to your pooler before realizing he shouldnt

be. He then said he was merely traveling with his son in Montana and doing

some interviews. He promised to speak more after he consulted with the

campaign. More TK.
