I was honored to be invited to see Barack Obama speak today. It was a closed event blah blah blah. It was also outside in 90° heat. I was not sitting in the shade. Right now I’m at school, so don’t have a lot of time to write. The speech was excellent and I was able to meet Obama. Also, my face didn’t seem too red (though it was) on CNN.
Did I mention it was flippin’ hot? And that I was thrilled to be there?
Here’s video of part of the speech:
Hopefully I’ll be able to get some pictures up. I didn’t get any really good shots because my camera sucks ass and I’m all of 5ft 1in. I did meet him and I was thrilled with that. And he did exceptionally well with the question/answer session (none of the questions were pre-screened like Bush/McCain is wont to do) and he didn’t do a whole lot of stuttering. Zach Space, though, said a small oopsie. He said “blah blah blah three words out of the speech blah blah blah ‘It’s all about you’ blah blah blah”- you know, “It’s all about you” is 4 words, but we’ll give Space that one.
I like geeky stuff, politics, squirrels and monkeys.
