    I didn't even try to get tickets. I knew what the scene would be like (and it appears I was right).
    I had the great pleasure of meeting candidate Obama before the primaries in '08. He was a skinny guy that hadn't quite found his voice on the campaign trail yet. He was in a distant 3rd behind Hillary and Edwards at the time. I stood in a room with less than 100 people that came to see him (it was $100 a head fund raiser). Rep. Wexler introduced him and I watched him speak trying to determine if this guy had what it takes. I remember telling my wife at the time, that we may have just met the future POTUS. Guess I was right again (broken watch and all).
    Fast forward to today, though I won't physically be in that hall to watch him speak again (I envy those who will), I am proud of our President, and now more than ever...

    I live in Florida, and no, I don't "get" my state either.
