DETROIT (AP) Barack Obama doesn't want Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and his legal troubles to be a distraction at the upcoming Democratic National Convention, and he got his wish Thursday when a judge ordered the city executive to stay home.
A Michigan spokesman for Obama, Brent Colburn, said in an e-mail Thursday that the focus of the convention in Denver this month should be on Obama and not on what Colburn called "the troubles of one individual," a reference to Kilpatrick and the two criminal cases he's facing.
Kilpatrick, who would have gone to the convention as a superdelegate, faces eight felony charges in a perjury case and two felony charges in an assault case.

Can they just make next 3 months bus schedule public?
It has to be getting pretty crowded under Obama’s bus!
“Legal troubles?”The author is too polite.The whole world knows the guy is a criminal,just haven’t gotten to the trial phase yet.
Yep. Kwamee is done.
BO must be behind on his protection payments.
A shining example of a dem party superdelegate. Bravo, Kwame! You've defrauded and looted your city, violated the oath of office, lied to its citizens, betrayed your wife and friends by having sex with an "aide" and then lying about it under oath, physically attacked your own policemen, violated the court's orders and your bail bond requirements, and totally obliterated any rudimentary vestiges of decency, honor, or morals you may ever have had. You haven't, as far as we know, fathered a child out of wedlock and then denied it, but even without that, you're a perfect example of the Democrat Party in action, so SHOW UP at the convention. Who cares what the Obambi tells you to do!
The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round ...
Kwame goes under the bus for now, but should Obama win, mark my words: he will be rehabilitated.
There was a thread earlier today that said he had been cleared to go.
Is the convicted-but-out-of-jail-pending-appeal Don Siegelman still speaking at the convention?
Will Edwards be there?
LOL! Then he better remove Hillary from the docket because she'll be front, and in center focus!
“Kwame, you just play the game for a few more months, and I’ll make you my HUD Secretary.”
Wouldn’t live be deeeelightful if we could just disallow all of the “distractions” caused by anything negative connected to us?
“Be sure to wear a flower in your hair...”
Whats one more you jack off.
Not you Obama.
That's right! Now I'm confused. Is he under the bus now or just in back?
No a second judge over-rooled the 1st and put the GPS Ankelet back on.
I say it again...
Rush needs an "Operation Chaos Phase III, Keep Kawame Alive!" :-)...
Hey, Patrick is a "white" name....
