Hey all!
I went to a rally for Barack today. I was with some die-hard Democrats, so they got me good and up front. I got lots of good pictures of him, and I got to shake his hand and say a quick hello.

He's so handsome, articulate, and I was inspired by his speech. I am more and more impressed with this brother everyday. :wub: He had some good things to say, and I hope to goodness he will be a man of his word. I figured since most folks here on NP have good things to say about him, you guys would appreciate the pics I took. The album will be open for a few weeks and then I'll probably close it (because I am scary like that).

If the album is closed and you still want to see the pics, PM me with your e-mail addy and I'll get them to you!

Thanks for sharing the pictures, they came out really nice. Ever since I heard him speak at the 2004 Democratic Convention, I knew that he's someone who needs to be in politics.

@ ~EnlightenedSista~ - he talked about global warmimg/environmental issues, universal health care, restoring trust and faith in the government, ending the war in Iraq and bringing troops home quickly, etc.

@floetry22 - yes I went to the rally at the Kravitz Center.

Wow! You did get great pics! I hope Obama comes close to my area again, he was in AR several months back for an event, but I couldn't get off work to go :( !

Good news! One of the professors at the university I attend wants me to write a short blurb about the rally to print in the local and school newspapers!

That's awesome, LSR! The pics were nice too. Sounds like you had a good time and that he's got some good ideas for improvement.
