I went to a Democrats Abroad meeting last night. Afterward there were sign-up sheets for those interested in volunteering or receiving information on the various presidential candidates. Guess which one people were hovering around?
And then today I read that, of all the presidential candidates—Republican or Democratic—Barack Obama has gathered more contributions from members and employees of the military.
Could that have anything to do with the fact that he's called for a withdrawal of all troops from Iraq by the end of 2008?
I guess maybe they're sick and tired of coming home in body bags.
Also interesting: Michelle Obama is coming to London. You can go to the event, for a $100 donation to the campaign. Bill Clinton is also coming to London to campaign for his spouse. You can get a ticket for that event too, but you'll have to pay $1000.
Guess which one I'm going to?
