Sasha Offers Dad's Hanky on eBay

Sasha Obama has put her father's soiled handkerchief up for bids on eBay this morning. On February 20, 2008, while speaking to a chilled audience, the Presidential hopeful blew his nose, and film shows he handed the folded hanky to Sasha.

"I can save up for my college if I auction daddy's stuff," she smiled, "It's kinda cool."

Cool indeed. The amount is getting serious now. 83 bidders at a price of $383.50 in the first 4 hours. If this hits the major news media rounds, watch out.

DALLAS – It's probably safe to say that you have arrived as a politician when your audience applauds when you blow your nose.

Yes, just a day before a debate in Texas, Sen. Barack Obama has a head cold.
And about a half-hour into a speech here, the Illinois Democrat announced that he had to take a quick break. "Gotta blow my nose here for a second," Obama said.

Out came a Kleenex (actually it was a white cotton hankie), and he wiped his nose. His daughter Sasha, prompted by mom, reached for the prop.

The near-capacity audience at the Reunion Arena, which his campaign said totaled 17,000, broke out in a slightly awkward applause.

Despite the cold, Obama's voice seems as strong as ever. He has a light schedule today and some time to rest up before his debate Thursday evening with Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York.
