Erica meets Obama!

I'm in Cody, Wyoming for the night. The next four nights will be spent at Fishing Bridge inside Yellowstone National Park.

I like Wyoming. From south to north, east to west - I like it. They have over 300 clear sunny day every year. Of course some of those days are thirty or forty degrees below zero, but it's a dry cold.

When, where did she meet Obama???
See, I told you she is a "super" delegate!!

Hee hee! It's just a cut-out! =)

Not to get too politic-y (stop reading now if you don't want politics today)... I "met" Senator Obama at the State Democratic Convention in Spokane, Wash on June 13th, where I served as one of Washington's 2000 delegates, who were elected at the Congressional District caucuses.

We 2000 started from 32,035 elected delegates elected statewide from our precinct caucuses held on February 9th. I felt honored to be a part of the event and had a really great time participating with a lot of friends who I was lucky to meet through my volunteer work in my community during the past six months.

I chose not to run again for a National Delegate spot (seven "at-large" were chosen that weekend, of 500+ who ran); I was super happy to see more of my friends elected to represent me at the convention in August ... they'd just better send me a picture of them meeting the Senator for real!

So, there you go! =) Love, Erica

PS - Also super proud of Chevy, for making the drive there and back without one peep of a complaint!

Erica, you sure caught me believin"! I'm still proud of you. Tom and I did the state Dem delegate thing one year, and he was a precinct committeeman, but they required more than he was prepared to do. But it was very fun to a point. Thanks for the story. Adventures like that make a life complete!
