Clinton in Fayetteville

In the interest of fairness, I should probably mention that Hillary Clinton will now be making a campaign stop here in Fayetteville on Thursday.  She’ll be speaking at Terry Sanford High School at 1:30.  It’s probably pretty clear that I’m an Obama Guy at this point, but if I wasn’t teaching, I’d probably go.

    I’m an Obama guy too, but during the Texas portion of the Primary Season That Won’t End, I saw Bill, Hillary and Obama in separate events. I was really glad I got a chance to see them all.

    Hillary’s event took me, a decided Obama supporter (and I did eventually vote for him) and moved me much closer to undecided. I was surprised at how well she won me over in that venue.

    I know it’s probably too late to make plans now, but if you have the opportunity to ditch your teaching tomorrow, I’d encourage you to go.

    I will say this, though: I saw all three during a rather more optimistic time in this campaign (A full 3 weeks ago!) It did seem like after Texas and Ohio is when the real nasty turn happened.

    I’d be interested in knowing how I’d have reacted to the three of them now that the shine is off a bit more.

    Unfortunately, I’ll have to miss Clinton’s speech because of my teaching obligations. Given my (slight, but getting stronger) preference for Obama, I also wonder how I’d respond to Clinton in that venue. I know that in the past, the candidate’s cult of personality has typically been quite strong for me. To some extent, I think you’re right that (almost) everyone is pretty much ready for this thing to be over. Hopefully, we can finally put an end to things on May 5 here in the Tar Heel state.

    That being said, while the negativity seems to be pretty high right now, I remain pretty optimistic about things. After all, the primary is having the effect of getting lots of people registered as Dems in Pennsylvania.

    I’m definitely going. Because the event is open to the public, I fear I might not actually see anything.
