    Very classy move.

    I'll date myself, however this reminds me of when I was in High School. Bush 41 was running as the incumbant. I was in attendance at one of the largest high schools in NH before the primaries. I heard that Clinton would be dropping by the school for a visit, and Bush would skip us over.
    My first thought was "who is Bill Clinton?"
    My good friend, who was into civics told me "He is gunna be the next President."
    I called BS, because Bush was riding the Gulf War high, and I never heard of slick Willie.

    I was told that some of the students would get a chance to meet and talk with Clinton. I had the pleasure of a sit dow with him, and could ask him whatever I wanted. After the sit down (45 minutes with about a dozen of us) I left the room.

    That was 2nd period...

    The rest of the day went on....I sung the praises of his ability to listen and relate.Then during last period, I was walking past the band room...and the band was GOING OFF! Playing loud and laughing. It was abnormal. I peeked in to se Bill Clinton playing sax with them and leading the band. He stayed at the school ALL DAY. People would be telling stories about him coming into class and participating in discussions. Others would say he was answering questions about lessons the teacher was giving. He made an impression on all those people, and Bush really sealed the deal with me, and the people he didn't make the effort to meet.

    I told my civicly interested friend "That guy is gunna be the next President!"

    he said "I told ya."




    watching Obama talk to the crowd after the debate reminded me of Clinton's 'human factor'. Its important for our leader to relate and be one of us, especially during these hard times.


    Obama is right: John McCain doesn't get it

    Yeah I watched as he stayed over for quite a long time even taking a group photo with the audience.I have never seen anything like it before. He and his wife took all the time that was needed to talk or have pics taken,unlike McCain who left immediately. A stark contrast.

    Very "elitist" of Obama.....

    again, classy. I was voting for Bob Kraft, but that move made me change my mind.

    I heard Obama was signing pictures and tee shirts of Che Guevara, but that's unsubstantiated as of the moment.



    :D

    Reminiscent of Bush vs Clinton debate, where Bush kept looking at his watch (is it time to go yet), my friend.

    Wow, even when your boy has a commanding lead in the polls, and even when he has the entire mainstream media gushing all over his every breath, you STILL cannot take a moment of levity to chuckle over the situation.

    How desperately you want to be on the side that's winning.

    Well, good for you. Enjoy.

    I read where three people in wheel-chairs got up and walked out of the auditorium after Obama went over and spoke with them.

    Just a rumor, though. Not "fact-checked" yet...

    Go, Che, go!!!

    Even worse is that there are some who would like to nail Obama to a cross dispite the fact he has done nothing wrong.;)

    That's not what Uncle Jeremiah, Bill Ayers, Bernadette Dohrn, Saul Alinsky, and Tony Rezko say. Btw, Bill, Bernadette, and Saul helped BarackO launch his political career. Some launching pad. :(
