I'm off to see Tim Kaine with Barack Obama

They're having a rally in Norfolk today, I still can't believe I'm actually going to see Barack in person.

Meanwhile, with 9 days to go Tim is starting to inch ahead in the polls. Two seperate polls came out recently that had had him behind the entire race, now have him ahead.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...102901449.html

This race is VERY important...it's essentially a referendum on Gov. Mark Warner, a 2008 candidate, as well as an indicator to how the 2006 midterms may go. If you're not paying close attention to it yet, pay attention. It will have a big effect on the direction of this country politically.

As for Barack Obama...I'll be sure and take tons of photos and report back about what he has to say!

Can I just say wow...that was amazing!!!!

Barack is an incredible speaker. After everyone was done speaking I shouted with a friend "WE LOVE YOU BARACK!" he turned around and said "I love you back!"

Tim of course saw me and gave me a great big hug. He has a cold, but he's still incredibly fired up. We've got the momentum in the final stretch!

Thanks, we need it. We might be able to pull this off...at this point the biggest obstacle is the massive GOP get out the vote machine. We HAVE to outdo them with GOTV otherwise a lead in the polls will mean nothing.

yeah...still, the Democratic Party in VA seems so promising. it's hard to get excited about politics in Georgia. the Dems are just as bad as the Republicans, so much corruption esp. in Atlanta.

We'll see how promising the party is Nov 8. I'm so nervous I'm already losing sleep.

But seeing Barack was awesome! He's so eloquent, so smart, so good!!!!!

Well you should be! Anyone (particularly democrats) concerned about the direction of this country should be nervous about this race!

I still hate myself for not watching the Democratic National Convention TV coverage last year on the night Barack was speaking.

I hope Tim wins, U2democrat!

If you never got to hear Barack's speech, you can listen to it here: http://www.americanrhetoric.com/spee...ama2004dnc.htm

There's also a video link but it's not working right now.
