Could the Lost final season be delayed?
It's a definite possibility and if you don't want to see that happen you better starting writing your elected representatives right now. Why? Because the delay could be the fault of the White House.

ABC insiders may soon want to tell President Obama to get "Lost."
The White House is finalizing plans for this year's State of the Union address and is said to be mulling two dates for the speech, according to a person familiar with the matter: January 26 and February 2.
So, what's wrong with that? Well, Jan. 26 would mean an interruption of "American Idol" -- though Fox likely planned for that (or would simply tell the White House to take a hike, as it has before).
But February 2? Other than the fact that it's a holiday (Groundhog's Day/TV MoJoe's birthday), that's the date ABC months ago staked out for the premiere of the final season of "Lost."
Yeah, right. We know.
The White House has already royally peeved the broadcast networks by scheduling so many primetime news conferences and speeches during President Obama's first year in office.
But forcing ACB to move "Lost"? Such a move could make the Tea Party protesters look like flies.
It could make the wrath of Rush and Drudge look pathetic.
Plus, it would be really bad Dharma. (Sorry, couldn't resist).
The good news, according to sources, is that the White House hasn't decided to press the button on the February 2 idea. No doubt ABC has made its displeasure with the date very clear.
After all, it's not like the network hasn't been airing promos for the Feb 2 date every three second since November.
"Lost" fans may already be mobilizing to halt this madness. Particularly since logic would suggest ABC would be forced to move back the "Lost" premiere until February 9 - forcing fans to wait another week for answers.
I think this show has made us so twisted that we don't even mind the idea of waiting just because we don't want to get closer to it finally being over ... I'm sure we're in the minority here.
