Media Event: The Presidential fundraiser event was WONDERFUL!!!

Today, I had an interesting opportunity to attend a Democratic fundraiser event for Mayor Tom Barrett at which President Barack Obama was speaking. This was a private event not open to the public. We were seated at table #2, very up close and personal to the podium. The lunch was delicious and included a pasta salad, grilled chicken, and a yummy caramel apple pie! Mayor Tom Barrett took to the podium first, welcomed everyone and spoke briefly. He then introduced the next speaker, President Barack Obama! I have not had the opportunity to see and hear the President in person, and it was amazing! The highlight for me was to be able to shake his hand at the end of his speech and for him to ask me "so how are you?". That sums up this post for today! To hear his speech and schedule at Milwaukee, visit these links:
