Today I Saw Obama Speak:

When we arrived many people were already in line waiting to enter the Marts Center at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Friendships were made while waiting in line.

Obama says that everyone is invited to his table. I believe him.

The Ohav Zedek Synagogue is a few steps down the street from where Obama  spoke.  It was defaced several nights ago.

We walked over to King’s College where Hillary Clinton was due to speak. We were hoping to do some trash talkin’ with her waiting fans but they were already inside. I think they were avoiding us.

When we finally arrived at the car it had been ticketed for an expired meter. Very unfestive!  Wilkes-Barre.

    I’m excited about other people’s excitement. I’ve been disappointed so many times, I can’t allow myself to be disappointed again. I still have to see him to believe him and I’m not quite sure I see him yet.

    I think the dirt and necessities of victory have compromised the impact of his message. I think his message is really a vision of community and cooperation. I believe vision is a necessary prerequisite to success in any endeavor. I like it better than the laissez faire approach when it comes to the whirlwind of history. We must be proactive to preserve our constitutional values: not in a dictatorial sense; but rather, basing our government processes and behavior on the original values of balance, honesty, and representation.

    That being said, I was taken aback by his statement about guns and religion. Also, I was disappointed he ran some borderline ads here in Pennsylvania. However, I think he will be a better leader. I believe that if he has to put country over party or re-election he will. I can’t say the same for Hillary.
