Obama chooses campaign over world leaders

U.S. President Barack Obama has made no plans to meet privately with any of the world leaders gathering in New York next week for the UN’s General Assembly.

With six weeks until the American elections, Obama is instead using his time to reach voters by going on the talk show “The View,” and leaving his schedule open to return to campaigning in the nation’s swing states thus putting the burden on Secratery of State Hilary Clinton to meet with the various heads of state.
