Drawn last evening while waiting for a "town hall meeting" with Barack Obama to begin. A good guitar player was entertaining the crowd. Too bad the pen leaked on him but it wasn't fatal.

how was the town hall meeting? What are your impressions of him up close (other than the good looks part)?

tee hee hee the plane that I took to Chicago on Wednesday was the plane that Obama took to Des Moines. I watched him disembark, totally cool, no prima donna'ing (coming off with an entourage, insisting that he disembark first, etc.), just walked off by himself, greeted his aides and said (when they tried to move him along): wait, wait, I have a whole crew with me. They trickled off the plane, mixed in with the other passengers, and finally all left. very low key - very Iowa :-).

Very Iowa, indeed! It wasn't until I moved away that I realized not everyone gets to see all the candidates up-close. I saw more presidential candidates there than I have in DC.

Read Rekha Basu's comments on the Obama appearance in her column today. I found that she expressed my feelings exactly. It is what I've been telling friends for several days. I disagree only with the end of the column on his answer to a new voter's question. I thought he did not answer her compellingly.
