Barack Obama came to Minneapolis and I got to see it front and center. Relying on contacts, friends, and a whole lot of dumb luck, I found myself on the rope line in front of the stage at the 20,000+ person strong rally at the target center. And I got to shake Barack's hand. And R.T. Ryback. And Keith Ellingson. And Betty McCollum. It was amazing. Here is a photo I snapped from the front row:
I will try to post some video clips too.
But the crowd was wild, the speech was amazing, and I am very tired from standing in one spot for 5 hours. At least we didn't have to stand outside!
