John Edwards visits OKC

JOhn Edwards Speaks in OKC

I attended a rally in Oklahoma City to hear Presidential candidate John Edwards. It was held at the local Teamster Union Hall. We were pretty well packed in.

Short people really get no love at these things.

Reportedly 800 people showed up to hear Edwards, 200 people showed up to volunteer for Obama and Hillary won the Nevada caucuses. Hillary is expected to be in Tulsa on Tuesday for a FREE rally followed by a FREE rally with President Bill Clinton on January 30 in Norman.

The Oklahoman predicted that the manjor candidates would ignore Oklahoma. I guess that is not true, at least as far as the Democratic Party is concerned. Time to be a part of the Blue Wave!
