President Boehner for 20 Minutes?

As President Obama departs for Israel tonight and Vice President Biden returns from Rome, "there will be about a 20-minute window when the nation's two highest-ranking elected officials will not be on U.S. soil," the Washington Post reports.

"Luckily, there is no reason to panic. This brief gap does not trigger a succession crisis, as White House officials are quick to point out."

And Speaker John Boehner's office "declined to comment on the fact that he might spend a quarter of an hour as the top American official on U.S. soil, or how he might take advantage of that brief home court advantage."
