Was Obama trying to run out the clock?

NEWSCOM/FILE

(Read caption) Was President Obama purposely trying to delay his speech to make it difficult for former Vice President Cheney's speech to get coverage? The president's speech started 28 minutes after it was scheduled.

President Obama is running late today. He was expected to speak at 10:00am.

It's not uncharacteristic of this administration to run late. But seeing that 28 minutes elapsed before Obama took the stage, you could make a case that the Obama team is trying to make it difficult on networks to carry former Vice President Cheney's speech.
