I saw the President in NH today

and it was a wonderful experience. The whole thing...parking half a mile away, lining up, going through security...was fun. I had a wristband to stand on the floor, but wisely took the front-row seat I spotted instead. I was directly across from the podium.

I didn't know we were going to be treated to a Ken Burns speech, and honored with speeches from Gabby Giffords and Mike Kelly. Maggie Hassan got a very enthusiastic welcome, as did several other NH candidates for office.

Although I've seen President Obama speak on TV many times of course, it was almost a spiritual experience to see and hear him in person, joking about Trump's twitter being taken away (while making his point about the nuclear codes) and reminding us --Don't boo --VOTE! His sincere praise of Hillary drew the biggest cheers.

Even the parking lot jam and traffic afterwards and the long drive home were worth it. It was a good day.
