Obama in Ft. Wayne
We joined 3,000 or so of our new best friends to see the Obama family in Headwaters Park. These pictures are from my cell--my camera battery died and those pictures will not be available until tomorrow. But these were taken after he spoke, then moved outside the pavilion and worked his way shaking hands about the fenced area to the north. It turned into quite a crush of folks behind the fence--we ended up, by shear dumb luck, to be near the fence and of course stuck our hands out to be shaken. But not before we'd been told how to do so by the Secret Service, of which there was about 10 times as many as for either Clinton. No metal detectors at the Clinton functions, either.
