As President Obama and Mitt Romney navigate the treacherous politics of running a late-stage presidential campaign in the wake of a massive natural disaster, both are carefully trying to make themselves appear to be focused on the wreckage of storm Sandy rather than the race.

On Tuesday, Mitt Romney turned a campaign rally in Ohio into a “storm relief event.” The president cancelled his appearances for Tuesday and Wednesday, though surrogates are holding events. Both campaigns will surely be looking to capture the images that make their candidates appear presidential at a time of crisis (think George W. Bush on the pile of rubble after 9/11, not peering out of an airplane after Hurricane Katrina).
