The Obama Boston trip happens right after the Michelle Obama birthday celebration. The Barack Obama Boston trip is to campaign for the Democratic candidate for Senate, Martha Coakley. The close race between Coakley and Republican candidate Scott Brown is surely the reason for the Obama Boston trip.
Barack Obama will speak at the Cabot Center at Northeastern University at 3 PM on Sunday, January 17, 2010. The Obama Boston appearance supports Coakley in the neck-in-neck campaign between the Democratic and Republican candidates.
The doors to see Obama in Boston open at 1 PM and the event is free and open for public attendance.
Here is YouTube video of Barack Obama supporting Coakley:
