Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama held his daughters’ hands when he escorted them to their first day of school. The girls arrived at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools in a five-SUV motorcade after a short drive from their South Side home. It was the first day of classes for 10-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha. Malia is in the fifth grade, while Sasha is a second-grader. They’d spent some of their summer on the campaign trail with their dad. Clad in a black track suit, Obama walked his daughters through the side doors of the ivy covered school building just before 8 a.m. before heading to a gym. AP ______ Copyright 2008 Associated Press.
