Pres. Obama had a rally in Hilliard, Ohio this morning to fire up the troops for early voting and volunteering for GOTV. I had a VIP ticket to get close (you just have to volunteer a few times to get a VIP ticket), so enjoy the photos...

The President stressed the theme of Ohio as firewall for his reelection and the importance of getting the vote out over the weekend and next week. Former governor Ted Strickland, his voice hoarse from the campaign, used a different metaphor, saying that Ohio is "the tip of the spear."

Hilliard is a suburb of Columbus, just past Interstate 270, which I regard as a good omen.
