An advance man on President Obama's security team who traveled to Mexico before the president is believed to have ... guess what? ... swine flu. Washington Post has story; administration quick to say the president didn't pick anything up on April trip there.

The president was in Mexico for less than 24 hours en route to the three-day Summit of the Americas in Trinidad and Tobago. A museum official who escorted Obama through an anthropological exhibit died of health problems unrelated to the flu a week later, and White House officials earlier this week went to great lengths to explain that "the president's health was never in any danger."
