Personalized and non-transferable

Well, I did not go to Indiana to work for Obama.  Instead, I had a relapse of my respiratory infection and went back to the doctor. Now I am on a new antibiotic, plus a bronchial dilator inhaler, plus some heavy-duty cough medicine.  Woohoo!

So, if Obama loses Indiana by 8 votes, it will be my fault entirely.  But the fact that Obama has made Indiana a swing state is extraordinary in itself.

But, I did get word that I am officially a ticket-holder to Obama's historic rally on election  night, so I will get to be there in person!  These tickets went fast, and though 100s of thousands of people will be there, only a select 65,000 got tickets.  OK, so that is not so select, but still, I have one.


I go into this week with a realistic optimism.  I feel like Obama is going to win, but I also know that anything is possible.  I first declared that Obama was my guy here 22 months ago, and it is hard to believe that we are now only two days away.

Caitlin and Erica (from the Decemberists shows) have tickets to the rally as well. I wish I could be there!
