72. I see it as the opportunity for Obama and Gates to be the bigger men
for some of the reasons you state.

This is a smart way to shine a light on the larger issue rather than ratcheting up the rhetoric or sensationalizing it.

Crowley, if he chooses to appear, may very well be a bit chastened by the magnanimous gestures of a President for whom he didn't vote and whom he said insulted police everywhere, and the man whom he was flat-out wrong to arrest under the circumstances.

I suspect that's part of the "teachable moment" the President hopes to generate.
