Update: Obama may or may not attend Chelsea Clinton wedding in Rhinebeck. Maybe.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked on Wednesday if President Barack Obama attending Chelsea Clinton's wedding, which has been reported to take place in Rhinebeck on July 31.

His response?

"Not that I'm aware of."


"Keep guessing, suckers!"


Also, a little lesson about how news spread on the Internets: Even though there are multiple reports about the Obama attending the wedding, all of them - from CBS to Radar to NBC, etc - quote the Hudson Valley News. All others quote Radar or NBC or CBS. Rinse and repeat.

Gibbs' statement is public record.

Regardless, Rhinebeck's going to be a madhouse on July 31. We'll be there.
