Obama won't speak at international AIDS conference in DC

Granted, a president has a busy schedule so who knows what might have been taking place at the same time. Still, with the conference happening in DC, this doesn't strike me as the wisest move.
President Obama will prepare a video message for attendees at the 19th International AIDS Conference in lieu of making a live appearance at the event, according to the White House.

In a notice issued on Monday, the White House announced that Obama is set to provide a brief video message for the conference, which will take place next week in D.C., as part of "[c]ontinuing his personal engagement on this issue." Shin Inouye, a White House spokesperson, confirmed this video message will be in lieu of a live appearance at the event.
