Today neighbor-Mike and I left around 11:20am for the Obama town hall meeting. Even though we arrived pretty early we had to use some creative seat sequestering to get as close as we did.
Obama was everything in person that he appears to be on camera - he truly is a demagogue, well spoken and powerful. His policies also seem to be well thought out and inline with my own world view. Put simply, Obama is my heterosexual man-crush.
So there is no need to guess how excited I was to see him in person:
Yeah. So it was a good day, except for the fact that I didn't get back home until 4:30pm (you'd think that one of the 20 police officers in the gymnasium would have thought to go outside and direct traffic).
