Duh.

Bessemer Opinions readers are informed and engaged, and by my polling narrowly support Barack Obama. So I urge you to all vote, and to call at least 5 people and make sure they have voted. Make it 10 people. Let’s have a historic turnout in Alabama.

We voted absentee last week, and this week we are here:

Yesterday we went to a Las Vegas rally where Michelle Obama spoke. Afterward she worked the crowd. People were really excited, and Michelle seemed to be truly enjoying herself. Her message was clear. Barack’s experience working in the poor neighborhoods of Illinois increases his understanding of what Americans are going through. He and she had student loans like so many young people that they paid off not to long ago. They are regular Americans, “Joe Americans,” I like to say.

After Michelle spoke she greeted the crowd.


Before the event we waited in line for a couple of hours. This guy pulled us aside and asked if we would stand on the riser behind the speaker. Of course we said yes. I mean…

Obama may not take Alabama, but I feel confident he will take Nevada. These folks are really well organized. But that is true of Obama’s campaign across the country, including Bessemer.

Now, go vote. Make history. Enjoy.
