Today, two days before the 2008 election, Barack Obama held a rally at the Ohio statehouse. News reports estimate that sixty thousand people attended. Four of them were our family. We arrived on the scene about four hours before the start and found ourselves in a line that was already about a quarter mile long. Fortunately however, we got reasonably close and the kids got a chance to experience the political process in action (and got to meet John Glenn in the process).
