I was tired today. I got a late start to canvass for Obama and my feet were hurting after spending all of Saturday canvassing for Obama in a hilly area.
So today, I went to Indy’s Central Township Obama office and spent a couple hours canvassing. It was positive experience, but again, I was tired, so I didn’t spend as much time pounding the pavement as I should have.
But on my way home, on the stairs of the state capitol, I saw dozens of people holding Obama signs. I didn’t know what was going on, so I parked my car and went to join my fellow Obama supporters.

It turns out that Students for Obama were rallying in the streets of Indianapolis in support of Barack before the Jefferson-Jackson dinner in Indy tonight.
I felt quite fortunate to have been at the right place at the right time.
I had no idea of what was going on, so I stayed to find out.
I was THRILLED to see WOW for Obama (Wiser Older Women). They had a great spirit and were simply lovely.
I was surprised that a few Democratic politicians showed up:
Joe Andrew: Obama’s newest superdelegate who reminded us that we should be welcoming our opponents rather than telling they are wrong.
Max Kennedy, RFK’s son talked about how similar Obama is to Max’s dad.
Former Congressman Andy Jacobs fires up the crowd.
After the speeches, the gospel choir and the drum band started to play again and we started to march toward the convention center while the choir sang.
Of course, when we made it to the Convention Center, Hillary people were there celebrating their candidate. They were quite enthusiastic for Clinton.
The Obama side countered.
It was a great day for me. Now I’m even more excited for Obama’s rally tomorrow night.
We are going to win.
