Obama campaign not taking Rep. Neil Abercrombie's phone calls...

I have a funny feeling after the column written in the Washington Post they might pick up the phone, out of embarrassment:
Hey, Obama Campaign, Look, Over Here!

Would the Obama campaign please hush and listen to Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii) for crying out loud? He's desperately trying to tell you something - but you won't listen. In fact, you won't event take his phone calls.

"I call all the time but I never get through," a wildly frustrated Abercrombie tells the Sleuth.

Abercrombie, an old friend of Sen. Barack Obama's (D-Ill.) parents -- they went to graduate school together at the University of Hawaii -- proudly claims to be the first member of Congress who endorsed Obama for president. But he says he and other Obama surrogates in the House are fed up with the campaign constantly ignoring them.

I wondered why Abercrombie would do this, is he that ego driven that he would draw negative attention to a campaign that is already having problems? This demonstrates that the Obama campaign does not appreciate one of the tenants of politics, "dance wiht the one who brought you". It raises more questions of political motivation from the presidential candidate who has promised to be different from all of those before. It raises questions of who will he listen to as advisors if he treats old friends and the first person who endorsed him for his presidential race that way?
