Barack Obama; Feb.23 2007, Auditorium Shores, Austin, TX

Here’s my custom-made Internet Yard Sign: Vote for Barack Obama, please, if you can. I was lucky enough to meet him, and get a feel for the guy, when he came to Austin for one of his first huge (20,000+) events, way back in February of ’07 (See posts #190 & 191). I was his assigned photographer for a few hours, before he had Secret Service protection…he was as easy and as open and as approachable as you could want. He’s the real deal. His smile is real. His eyes really sparkle. His brain is fully engaged. We’re all lucky to have such a man step up, willing to be our leader. ….And, hopefully, just a few more days before we can all practice saying “President Obama”. Wow. Cross your fingers. (And watch those polling places, and that Supreme Court, for “irregularities”, if you know what I mean.)
