I Went To A Rally

My brother-in-law used to work for the Capital Police in Madison, and through them he was able to get tickets to the rally in Racine for Michele Obama. My sister, Dewey and I went over today. Jenny was a little under the weather so she took a pass.

We got over to Racine about 1 hour before the doors to the Civic Center opened, so in total, we ended up standing on our feet for about 4 1/2 hours. But it was certainly worth it. Mrs. Obama is a wonderful speaker, and she really zeroed in on the importance of the young people voting and getting involved. She was exciting, enthusiastic, informative, and inspiring. She spoke for about a 1/2 hour, as she was headed for another rally in another part of the state. It was really exciting to be near this individual that has been all over the world representing our country. And she is a wonderful and classy 1st Lady that everyone in the country should be proud of.

We had a good time even while we waited in line. We chatted with many other people, and even though it was overcast and chilly (but no rain - knock on wood), everyone was in fine spirits and into the event.

Michelle Obama is probably her husband's #1 asset, IMO. A total class act. I'm envious that you got to see her in person-- here's to 4 more years!
