I am not sure what you are asking. A sitting president is normally certain of being nominated for a second term, so he tries to appear statesman-like and keeps apart from the hoop-la of the convention. If he wants a new Vice President or has ideas for the platform, he would let his staff and friends make his wishes known. He will probably appear and make a speech the last day of the convention.

Should president Obama award Lois lerner a medal of freedom for her war on the tea party?

Absolutely. Lois Lerner held off the Tea Party and other illegal groups from organizing and opposing President Obama's reelection. When she testified before Congress she stated that she broke no laws and did nothing illegal. President Obama should give her the Medal of Freedom for fighting and defeating enemies of the President. Eventually President Obama will outlaw the Republican Party but until this happens he must use all of the mechanisms of the Federal Government to destroy enemies of the President and therefore of the country.
