The First Draft: Gaddafi, the tent and The Donald

UE-AFRICA/Official Washington is gazing northward this morning toward New York and the United Nations, where President Barack Obama will be followed in the General Assembly by Libya's Muammar Gaddafi. The big question in the blogosphere is not what Obama will tell the gathered diplomats of the world -- the White House has indicated he will stress a new tone in foreign policy -- but where Gaddafi spent the night.

Unlike the rest of the assembled envoys, Gaddafi prefers a Bedouin tent to a hotel (hates elevators, reportedly) but his plans to pitch a tent in the suburban town of Bedford, New York, hit a snag with local authorities. Construction of the tent, featuring draperies with a camel print, was halted on Tuesday. ABC News reported that he bedded down in Manhattan close to the United Nations.
