Yesterday, Obama had one of his last rally's at UNC Charlotte. Did you know that? It was AMAZING. No, I did not attend, although I just missed him at campaign headquarters. But our campus was pretty much vibrating with energy and excitement yesterday. And when I left at 4:00 and saw a mile long line of people lined up to get into the stadium, I thought my heart was going to explode. In all, over 20,000 people stood in the cold wet rain to hear him speak.
I am sure that there are quite a few folks in this typically red state that are concerned that we might turn blue this year. But from my vantage point, it's all good. If North Carolina becomes a swing state, we will be the recipient of so much attention and goodwill (money!) for each election, that we can actually have a say in how this country works. That is an amazing outcome for our state for the 2008 election.
Now let's just go out and vote. For Obama!!!
