Obama's Last Pre-Election Day Rally....Right Here in Virginia!

This was in Manassas, Virginia, the site of the first major land battle of the American Civil War, fought on July 21, 1861. Little more than 147 years later, it is the site of the last presidential rally by the man who will be the first African-American President of the United States. The marvel of it is that he has reached this position on his own merits, without bringing race into the picture. Others have, yes, but he has not.

The Manassas police force estimates that 100,000 people showed up - the largest crowd of people ever to gather in Prince William County!

My Boss Christine

This is my "boss" Christine who has been directing my volunteer work on behalf of Obama. Though I have not had a lot of time to dedicate (very busy with work), she has been nothing but gracious and grateful for my help. She is actually a Californian helping out in Virginia, mostly on her own dime. That's dedication!

Free Starbucks Coffee Day!

Starbucks had declared that they would reward anyone who had voted today. Turns out that it's against Federal law to reward anyone for voting. So...they have declared that anyone who comes into Starbucks TODAY (Election Day) can ask for a free cup of coffee. Go for it!
