Where are Senator Clinton's People?

I like Senator Obama just fine, but one more phone call or doorbell ringing from his people and I'm ready to file a restraining order.

On the other hand, I have no mail, no phone calls and no knock-knock-knocking on my door from Senator Clinton's people. Other than lunch in February with a strong supporter of Senator Clinton, I have seen neither hide nor hair of the campaign.

Is this common throughout Orange County? Or is it just my neighborhood? Or demographic?




Obama is messing with us.

Many of OP readers stood in lines this morning aiming to obtain tickets for the Rally next week in Carrboro. Looks like he’s asking us to do it all over again tomorrow in many of the same places for a rally occurring Monday evening at the Smith Center.

Locally, tickets will be obtainable again at the Moorhead Planetarium and also at the Carrboro town hall. Will I get in line again tomorrow? Probably. I am such a sucker.

Change Rocks concert for Barack Obama

It doesn't say clearly whether he'll be there in person. If he is, the turnout will be way more than 4,000. Maybe I'll the day off work on May 2nd...

The Carrboro Board of Aldermen approved a request from the local Barack Obama campaign staff to use the Town Commons at 301 W. Main St. for a rally and to encourage early, one-stop voter registration during the afternoon of May 2.

The Obama campaign plans to have several local bands play at the rally. It expects about 4,000 people, but Capt. Joel Booker of the Carrboro Police Department said the rally could easily become larger than that.

Seriously, good idea to do it right next the early voting site at Town Hall.
