Barack, in the flesh

Barack Obama is in town to support Amy Klobuchar for US Senate. Amy will be taking the retiring Mark Dayton's (D - MN) seat....as long as that weenie, Mark Kennedy (R - MN), doesn't win.

Barack is speaking tonight at a fundraiser. Luckily, he also showed up at an impromptu rally today at the local junior high school, which just happened to be in my neighborhood. Cool, huh?!

My future in-laws, niece and I went to see him.

The event was packed. You could feel the winds of change in the air. Good times.


The line to get in.



Very packed crowd



I had to sneak into the restricted zone to get this shot
That's Mark Dayton & Amy behind Barack.



My niece, Hallie, and me


Official story from StarTribune.com:

Obama gets DFLers on their feet

His remark that "we do not have adult supervision in Washington" was a hit at a Saturday afternoon rally.

I didn't read the link, but is she related to the Strib's old columnist?

Cute pic of you and Hallie!

Thanks, guys.

Yep, you're right, M, Jim Klobuchar is her Dad.

They stole a pic from my blog...where's my photo credit?:
