nope no need for him to be there. but the vice-president should had.
It was pretty last minute and the security measures needed for him there would have been troublesome. Good call not to go, he should just give vocal support and move on, he's got a lot on his plate at the moment. It would have been odd to see any Europeans complaining about it given Paris is just a few hours away for them, luckily I didn't seen any whining from the Europeans. Better believe Fox News would have been talking a whole bunch of nonsense if he had gone. Not worth it, we sent Eric Holder, that's enough.
More power to the people of France!

Not to mention you already know about Pakistan and Afghanistan Taliban pledging to ISIS.
Biden should have been there....or someone high ranking anyways.
Obama shouldn't have gone...he'd steal the show.
An unprecedented gathering of statesmen and we don't send anyone?...that's not real cool on our part..
