Got confirmation today from the Coordinator of Commencement at ASU – their Bookstore made a mistake and Obama was wearing the wrong color hood at their Commencement. They had two sets of regalia prepared – the ASU regalia that he wore, and also a black robe with Harvard hood – which is appropriate. The ASU regalia was chosen and by then, the mistake of blue hood (for Ph.D.) was too late to correct (he should have been wearing purple – for his earned law degree).
REPEATABLE: Does a White House protocol office exist? The White House should have the President prepared for every situation, everywhere, everytime. They really can’t risk that they show up anywhere and not have the proper attire, food, microphone or any other detail not covered.
