Along with a thousand of my neigbhors, I celebrated the first day of the new year by going to attend Barack Obama rally at Des Moines' Theodore Roosevelt HS gymnasium. This was the Obama event I was waiting to see...one filled with passion and energy. He has matured as a campaigner and now knows how to deliver his message and vision. He has come a long way since Feb 2007. The scene was great for drawing. I stood to the side near the press desks. Made three drawings and I think they capture the scene pretty well. I wasn't fast enough to catch Obama to ask him to sign my drawing, but Michelle Obama signed the drawing I made of her introducing her husband.
Just 29 hours to go.
CNN will be broadcasting live from our caucus tomorrow night.
