6. A good reason to not attend is to make it plain that Scalia and Obama had nothing in common.

Obama taught Constitutional law. I think his view of that document is quite different from the views that were held by Scalia.

Obama is in a situation where it's probably best to acknowledge that if he can't say anything nice--and he cannot--it's best to not say anything at all.

I think he's right to give this one a miss. It sends a very clear message that he's a liberal, and Scalia was not.
