Comin' To Visit: Barack Obama
There are three possible chances for me to see Democratic Presidential Nominee hopeful, Senator Barack Obama, within the next 24 hours and I'm workin' like mad to ensure it happens. How often does one possibly say they've met a future president? I might be able to say that twice over if I can score tickets (I met Senator Clinton many years ago when she was still First Lady. I'll blog about it someday).
Barack is going to be at Penn State this morning speaking in front of Old Main. Remember my friend Zende is a student there? I might be able to get him to get the necessary tickets, hop in my car and make the trek to State College. It'll only takes two hours from here. Would I really drive? No, Lady Miss T is comin' with me. If we need go that far.
This evening, Barack is speaking at the Commonwealth Forum downtown. Fortunately I have an "in" there because I have a good friend who works at the Forum who might be able score tickets. For some reason they're being very sketchy with details on Obama's visit to Harrisburg. Local media has not really released too much information. I wonder why? But me? I'm know how to navigate the Internet, dammit. I found out my information. The only problem now is attempting to get tickets. Every thing requires a ticket!
Finally, Obama will be speaking at Thaddeus Stevens Technological School (Stevens Tech) tomorrow in Lancaster. Again, Leoben lives in Lancaster, so I made a call to him this morning to find out details!
Yeah, I know the odds meeting Barack are slim to none, but you never know. I have a knack for meeting folks when I want to. I won't brag about anyone I've met because it's just pompous to do so, but if I meet Senator Obama, yeah, you won't get me to stop talking about it. Especially if he would win the Oval Office in November!
I'll keep y'all posted.
