Obama takes daughters to first day of school

CHICAGO (AP) -- 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 Monday 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. 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.
