Not so classy

According to the New York Times, President Barack Obama invited himself to be commencement speaker at an women's college in New York City:
A month ago, Barnard College announced that Jill Abramson, the executive editor of The New York Times, would be its graduation speaker, but those plans changed with the call from the White House. Ms. Spar said that Ms. Abramson had said she would be happy to speak at Barnard in the future.
Classy, eh? Shove a woman out of the way so the president can have another platform to tell us how he and his administration are champions for women and women's health.

Any desperation shown by this White House move? Gotta wonder if other schools may have already turned the president down. Or was the O Team was startin' to sweat because no school had asked him to appear this year?
