Campaign 2008

So yesterday I got to experience 2 rally's for the presidential nomination. It started off with Chelsea Clinton when she came to speak on her mother's behalf on campus in the Union and ended with going to Plano to hear Mike Huckabee speak. It was awesome! It was the first time that I ever participated in anything like this before.

It was really cool to see Chelsea because I remember seeing her as a child when I was younger and wondering what it would be like to be in her shoes in the White House. She was set up on the first floor of the Union where many faculty, staff and students gathered to ask questions and to hear her response. It was basically all of the things that her mother already said and nothing new was really pointed out. It was just a cool event to go to. We also saw her Secret Service detail.

Mike Huckabee spoke at Collin College-Spring Creek Campus and he filled up the entire room. They initially had a small room for him and they ended up pulling out the walls so it could expand into the other adjoining rooms (it has the collapsible walls). This was also another great event. He is a great speaker and really went out of his way to connect with Texas voters by sharing his stories of the times that he lived in Texas and also his close proximity when he lived in Texarkana, AR. You could hear the classic call-and-response form which is essential to the Southern Charm.

AND to top off the night, I caught the end of the lunar eclipse too! All in all, I think that it was a very productive night.

Don't forget that Early Voting goes through Monday night and Election night is Tuesday, Mar 4th!
