I hope it wasn't an intentional "knocking down," because I really have no tolerance for people who will knock down, vandalize or steal a political sign because they're on the "other side."

Or maybe they're just being obnoxious, like a pack of marauding no-goodniks or something. That's not okay, either.

i don't know cori. That road has a high accident area. One of the worst areas in Maryland. It looked like it could of been knocked down because of a car wreck. I know it happened sometime between this morning and at the end of the work day.

I'm running out of battleground states to go offer my services to.

Missouri and Indiana

and we could see:

I took these photos a few hours ago:





I still can't believe Virginia is getting this much attention.

The crush of the crowd was so intense when he got to me that he almost fell backwards himself...the secret service were going nuts.

heh, the speech was good, though it was all about healthcare. It was loaded with specifics and policy, and people wanted to get pumped up, and people were also passing out left and right, so he actually had somewhat hard time keeping the crowd's attention. The phrase of the day was, though, "That ain't right!" every time he listed off a McCain policy stance. "That ain't right!" The crowd was generally lower-middle class, mostly African American which is about what I expected. Plus there were random students from my university scattered throughout the crowd as well.

In all it was an insane day...but worth it to see the looks on my friends' faces who had NEVER been involved in politics before, and all of a sudden they've touched Obama. I saw the enthusiasm in their eyes that I've felt the last 8 years of my own life. I felt like a proud mama

We took a trip to kind of rural Montana today, and there were still Ron Paul 2008 yard signs in some of the gardens.

8 years of Bush / Cheney have done more to decimate a party than either Richard Nixon's Watergate scandal and resignation or
Bill Clinton's Lewenski scandal and impeachment.

GOP dread: Dems could hit 60 Senate seats -
