Mr. President

I got the great opportunity to see Barack Obama speak live this morning in Golden, Colorado. It was a pretty incredible experience, regardless of my political views. I guess it's just a perk that I dig this guy.

I decided last night that I would make a sketch of him, take it along with me, and if opportunity arose I would exchange it for a handshake and maybe a photo with him. Though I had a very good view of The President while he spoke - I was about 35-40 yards from the podium - getting any closer was next to impossible. There were A LOT of people there. Regardless, it was a great time, great speech, and I am happy that I decided to give it a go.

Maybe I'll drop the sketch in the mail, addressed to DC... Who knows?

Get registered and vote, folks!
