Public speaking and bathrooms. How do you make it work?

Why do we never see public figures excusing themselves to go the bathroom? Let's say you're at the presidential inauguration or maybe you're on a speaking panel and you've got to be in the public eye for the next 5 hours; excusing yourself to run to a faraway bathroom is not an option. How do public figures prepare for that? Or more specifically, how should I prepare for an event like that? Obviously eating 3 chili dogs and 4 cups of coffee beforehand is a bad idea but are there any other tips or hints that say presenters and public speakers know that aren't common knowledge to the rest of us?
