And...

But finally! Wah-lah!

Obama did his trademark confident skipping down the stairs to the roars of...

Me and some people at store where the television was on. They also showed him shaking hands in a tiny crowd there to greet him, as the news noted the security there, and we commented what a hard job he has that turned his hair grey.

There was some footage of people with signs and I asked, 'Are those welcome signs or protest signs?'

The people there said they hoped they were welcome signs. That's when things got more animated.

Tthe talk went to chances of Democrats to win more seats, the prospects of which was exhilarating to all of us.

We were just a group of women who'd never met before from all walks of life, countries and ages, all rocking with our president being in our town!

Loved the comraderie! Yeah!
