new prez November 7th, 2008

It was a really pretty day in Portland the day Barack Obama came to town, and thanks to my pals the Decemberists
I got to watch from the best seats in the house – the stage alongside his podium.

    congratulations for a brand new level in a better empire than the ones before! (and i mean it, even not liking capitalism all that much)

    Isn’t it neat!! I live in New Hampshire, so when the primaries were going on, it was considered no big deal to be so close to a candidate. I was right up front row and center at a speech he gave at a highschool, and walked by Kucinich. Obama and Hillary also popped by into my highschool that week as well.
    I love America.

    I still can’t believe no one even looks at his voting record, which is deplorable at best towards consumer americans.

    Oh, happy days! You know, as an American living abroad, I’ve been overwhelmed by just HOW MUCH support Obama’s election has received down here in Australia. It’s incredibly heartwarming to know that the entire world is cheering for America. What a great time to be alive!

    Nice perspective, all that people in the meeting. it seems to be a festive one.
    In Europe Obama’s leadership has been received with hope.
    I think this was a necessary step, for the USA, and also for the world.

    I had better seats than you, but from his rally in LaCrosse, WI (in my website link)! Quite the experience to be around the man and the fervor he can inspire in people.

    I’m so jealous !

    The Decemberists never come to France ;_;

    holy crap! Being a comics artist once got me an after hours tour of the White House (Clinton-era, pre-Lewinsky) from a staffer, but I think you’ve topped that. Very impressive.
