Be The Change - Minneapolis For Obama

On Thursday I took a cab home from work so that I could take Mom to the doctor. The driver was listening to Rush Limbaugh on the radio. Rush posed the question "Do you want to wake up on November 5 and hear that Barack Obama is President?" "Yes!" I said. And that started a whole conversation about politics and the US. This driver is an immigrant who recently became a US citizen. I asked him if he planned to vote and he said he didn't have time. I told him that John McCain was hoping for just this. By the end of the ride I think I had convinced him to park his cab and go vote.

We were discussing the "Be the Ball" line from "Caddyshack" in my blog recently. "Be the Change" reminds me a little too much of that.

I'm also glad we live in a country where these discussions are possible.

I wouldn't be too sure he votes Obama - even I don't listen to over-the-top Rush! =)

dmarks I like that, 'Be the ball!' LOL.

Betsy, you're right, one never knows. I've an inkling though that he'd vote for Obama.
