The president's motorcade rolled from the Hilton Downtown Cleveland and delivered him a few minutes later, about 10:53am, at Burke Lakefront Airport. It's sunny and 55 degrees, a bit brisk for poolers who perhaps didn't notice this would be an outdoor event. Rally setup for Clinton campaign (she's not here). Big signs say "Vote" and "Stronger Together" and "Ohio" in light blue. Green telescoping platforms loom over the crowd with lights. Perhaps 1,000 people -- I'll pass along an official crowd count when available -- are enjoying a medley that included "Respect" as pool was arriving. Flags are waving in the light breeze.
The pool did not see the president this morning at the hotel.
