How exciting! There were 15,000 or so when he came to Seattle back during the primary, and I was a bit starry eyed.


That's what I like so much about you, Jenn - you're not a Kool-Aid drinker!

Well, that, and much much more. :)


I it so wonderful that our children are involved in what is going on in our country.
When I was a kid, I did not have a clue and no one spoke of government around the house.
Times have changed.

Cool. That must have been a wonderful experience. One of my son's friends recently went to see Obama speak too....unfortunately, he can't tell his parents he went, since they are such staunch Republicans and he fears their lectures.


I wonder if MVP saw my friend there. :-D She also said it was great...but not as great as the speech he made in Denver at the convention, which she also saw! I do so wish I could have been "home" for that!!

So...how was W? I just saw some previews and am thinking that it looks good...in a "Good Lord, is that what he was really like?" kind of way...thumbs up? down?


sb is a good blog daughter. she knows bossy.


Your son is lucky!


How did you like W.?


I'd love to go to one (for the "contact high"), but I just don't do large crowds very well anymore.


So cool that he got to see/hear Obama - WOW! I was so impressed by the speach he did the other day in the rain.

Have a good day, Jenn - see you - Kellan

Very cool for him to have that experience!


I once met Ken livingstone (Ex London Mayor)...mmmm, perhaps not quite the same thing?!
Hope all is well,

Cheri @ Blog This Mom!

When Kristen and Courtney were about Laura's age, Clinton came to UCLA ('92, I think). I turned over a trash can so they could stand on it to see him above the crowd. They still remember it.

Seeing in person someone who is an excellent orator is practically magical.


Before I even read the post, I saw the photo and got goosebumps.


how lucky! something to remember forever....


Wow what an experience

Hilarious he thought to mention Bossy!! I saw Barak in a small auditorium. And Hillary, same auditorium, different day. But no handshakes. Just excitement and pride in our great democracy!


Way cool. I don't remember ever feeling this way about an election...maybe I did drink the kool-aid, but it was damn fine stuff.

I think that is rather insightful on your son's part.


It would be amazing to hear Obama in person. I love hearing him on the radio.

I want to see "W!"
