What a fantastic afternoon.
Senator Barack Obama is one of the most amiable and genuine individuals I have ever met. Once he arrived, and we took care of the initial pleasantries, he sat down, cozied up to the table, grabbed a handful of snacks, popped a couple in his mouth and said "Whataya got for me" or something to that effect.
Knowing my time was limited, I dug right in. The Senator was very engaging, yet personable. I was able to get through my material in the allotted time, with an opportunity for a couple photos at the end.
I hope to share some comments about the rally, and its overflow crowd. But my desire to get the interview transcribed in a timely manner may prohibit that. For now, you'll have to settle on this photo, so I can at least prove I was in the same room with him. *laughing*
