Obama field trip

On Wednesday, we’re going to hear Barack Obama speak at the Change We Need rally in Indianapolis. Yes, that’s right: the capital of Indiana, a traditionally Red state that this year is wavering toward going Blue. A wavering so distinct that the Democratic candidate is coming here less than a month before the election. Who would ever have thought it possible?

We’re taking our daughter (a high-school senior) out of school to come with us; her boyfriend’s family has also agreed that he can go. What better civics/government lesson could they receive than watching our great American democratic system in action?

I Am Excited to see and hear Obama in person.

  1. That is pretty exciting. And it sure beats getting a lesson about it in US Gov class!

    I actually passed up a couple opportunities to see him (before the primaries), but that’s mostly because I’m not a fan of his.

  2. Bring me a yard sign!!!
