    I will never forget Senator Obama walking into our campaign office in Charlotte the afternoon before election day in 2008. He didn't bring pizza, but he did some phone banking and shook our hands and gave us all the thrill of our lives. That young woman in the photo is adorable!

      That must have been super exciting! I actually had someone in my campaign office today who is turning 100 in november. It was really interesting to meet him. Also, I know a woman who stopped by to make calls a few times and she is 83 (although she looks 63.) She always says that when calling and people ask her why she is making calls at that age. She once got another 83 year old on the line and they had a really nice conversation.

        was on my data entry team in '08 -- but I guess he was just a young dude of 79 back then. President Obama brings the ages together!
