**I thought it was appropriate to "re-post" this from 10/8/2007 (prior to Super Tuesday/Primary Election - fighting Hillary and all)!!!!
Some of you can even review your comments HERE from a year ago! ;op

History has been made and I am SO glad I was a WITNESS to Democracy prior to anyone even knowing to trust him or not!!!**


that is what one of my friends said I was over the weekendand I must agree!


My girlfriend invited me for a quick road trip to hear O.bama with another friend and of course got lost in the great metropolis of R.ock Hill, SC Haha! :op But we finally got there and waited for B.arack to take the stage.


And the crowd went wild!

Of course I pulled out my digi cam along with the other hundreds of people and took a ton of pics hoping some will come out half way decent! Haha! :op

I am vertically challenged (and there was not one tall person around me!) so please excuse all the heads and there was one particular man's hand I wanted to chop off while I was there! Ugh!

This was actually the first presidential candidate rally I had ever attended, or for that matter wanted to attend. Don't get me wrong I have always exercised my right to vote but never jumped at going to hear a candidate at a rally until now.

B.arack of course spoke about all of the hot topics like the other candidates: health care, education, w.ar, etc. Then I remembered "Ooh! I have a video option on my camera!" Haha!

Of course, I missed all of his good "tag" lines and very good talking points. Dangnabit!

In my few video clips I got one really good one of him talking about education, parents, and us truly being the government...but of course you.tube would not let me upload as it is over the size limit.

But here is a short one of him talking about what others have seen his first entitled book





Well there I was experiencing a moment of history and glad I took the opportunity to witness democracy!!

YES WE DID!!!!

    There was never a doubt that California would hand over its 55 votes to Obama, but I was still so moved and proud to be a part of it.

    LOL@ vertically challenged! I would have loved to have heard him speak! I was actually congratulated at work by my coworkers for his win...Many people of the various nations that I work with are so proud that a person of his charisma, intellect and attraction will grace the White House and carry the face of America in to the free world.

    I for one, am prouder to be American!

    Now I"m totally fascinated by his cabinet selection process. It's so refreshing to have someone intelligent in the white house!

    Thanks for that post! You really got to see things unfold. Thanks for sharing again. My Mom had a chance to shake his hand and talk with him, but my Sister's shorty needed attention and my Mom had to take Jaden and get out of dodge. lol.

    Girl, thanks for stopping by! I am on knit/crochet hiatus right now, but I'm still holding on, waiting for "change"... I'm sooo in need of that!

    I wish all the best for our new {and first AA} President! :)

    Take Care~
