Awesome! Please come back with TONS of details!!

OK Caty, here are your details. There was an organizer from Tempe and seven of us from Tucson. Three of them very high power people. I have been made the unofficial organizer for the Tucson group. There is a large meeting next Wed. at the University of Arizona.
I have to do the email list tomorrow. It may grow rapidly here in Tucson.

ooo! That's so exciting Mike! Glad to hear you're the unofficial organizer for the Tucson group!!! I visited Illinois State University today, and everywhere they're trying to gear up support for Barack with flyers and chalk writing on the sidewalks even!! lol!

Bit off topic here, but I would like to ask a question. You often see a group of happy looking American civilians standing behind the President or a presidential candidate at a major press conference. They'll eagerly applaud or vigourously nod their heads at the appropriate time, or laugh if the speaker tells a joke or disparages the opposition. I would like to know how these people get chosen. Some sort of lucky dip at the local Republican/Democratic party headquarters? Or are they all paid members of the Republicans or Democrats posing as civilians?

Friends and family and people who have paid for the "privilege".

Today was a webcast of a talk he did to a small group in Council Bluffs, IA with question and answer. I went to the home of one of the guys who was at Wednesdays meeting.

My mother thinks he wont win, but that he is better than anyone else.

Next Wed. I am cutting Toastmasters again. There will be a giant meeting at the University of Arizona.

I found columns of the Guardian columnist in New York, Eric Younge. I found his comments about Obama and our political system fascinating.

I have to educate my host though. He thinks Israel really runs the United States. As someone who is Jewish, such comments can make me just a touch nervous shall we say.

Well I missed the meeting but told the organizer to have people contact me.
Through small contributions, he has now raised 25 million. Hillary Clinton has 36 million, but 10 million of that is left over from her Senate campaign.
Obama has 100,000 donators, 1/3 from the Internet.

Awesome to hear, Mike! Sorry you missed the meeting, though!
