I was inspired by Razzle Dazzle's post about her memories of the Obama 2009 Inauguration. It made me look up my old post about the day I was on stage with Obama. The link is below. When you click on it, it is set to open up a new window so you can click back here and comment if you like:
Turn off the Activia ad so you can see the video. I like the last part which is a close-up of the young people looking beamingly at Obama as he goes through a line of supporters. Then, Obama comes back to where we are standing and thanks us! Wow, I will never forget that day!
In the video, you see Senator Webb and our Representative Rick Boucher. Boucher was defeated in 2010--bombarded with attack ads by a secret organization (thanks to the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling). Also, when I worked at the polls, the tea partiers put up posters of Obama together with Boucher since our representative supported Obama early on. Obama is not popular here so that hurt him too.
Now, the tea partiers are targeting Senator Webb so I hope he fares better.
