    What did he say or do, or what sort of vibe was he emitting that made you say "Whoa"?

    (I was in the Obama breakout that afternoon. I asked him on the rope line if he could do anything about the then-mess in Springfield [a.k.a. our General Assembly and Rod Blagojevich]. He rolled his eyes and said something along the lines of "I don't want any part of that!")

    •  I had a husband that cheated on me... (2+ / 0-)

      After you have been through that, something internal just lit up... He strutted around like a peacock, just seemed like he was way too in himself... he just appeared totally different than you would expect from what his positions (per his papers and statements).  It was weird.  

      During the debate itself I wasn't that impressed with Obama either... my choice of him was by default... and the speech he had given at the convention a few years earlier.

        Thanks, though that had to be a crappy thing to re-experience.

        I always thought Edwards was slick, but dismissed his chances in 2008 because in a "change election" featuring a woman and an African American as leading contenders, "Change" wasn't going to be yet another white Southern man. Even so, my wife and I were floored when the National Enquirer's story turned out to be true and he turned out to be the complete shit-heel that he was.
