|Ah, McCain.||[Sep. 15th, 2008|08:54 pm]|
I've been lurking for a while, but I have to come out of the shadows for a few moments. Today's rally in Jacksonville? Oh-so-lame. McCain drew a crowd that the local news stations are reporting as 5000 strong. The Veterans' Memorial Arena seats 16,000, and he didn't even draw half that. And that's with Jeb Bush making an appearance and (more importantly for most of the city) Phil Stacey there to sing the national anthem. You have to understand, Stacey was all over the news when he was on American Idol, and it was practically all that anyone talked about on the radio. The fact that even he didn't draw a crowd...shows a major lack of enthusiasm for the, forgive the expression, "maverick."|
Obama's coming on Saturday! I'm hoping he comes early in the day, because otherwise there's gonna be a scheduling conflict and I will be really, really bummed. Previous commitment and all that. Biden chatted with FCN today. Nothing we haven't heard before, but it's always nice to see two men I like having a pleasant conversation while promoting my candidate. :)
Now I'm off to lurk some more. Or, you know, hover obsessively over all the political blogs until November 4th. Ciao!
