Since I just so happen to now live in Virginia, a state which matters this year, it appears as though my area will be graced by visits from the presidential candidates. Coming up on Wednesday there is a McCain/Palin rally at the Fairfax High School in Fairfax, VA. First and foremost, let me just state, if/when Obama and Biden visit the area, we will be on the ground there as well since this is purely for reasons of reporting.
What: Road to Victory Rally: Fairfax, VA on September 10th
When: September 10, 2008 8:00 AM
Where: Van Dyck Park, Fairfax, VA
The rally will begin at 11am on Wednesday, we’ll have some pictures, video, and a little report to follow.
I’m mainly interested in gauging the mood of attendees as to whether they’re there for John McCain or Sarah Palin. Based on what I’ve seen, the huge crowds are there for Palin, not because they love Mccain. Inquired about press credentials but I won’t hold my breath.
I’ll have a report on Wednesday afternoon with some thoughts on the message and the mood.
Once again, if Obama/Biden is in the area, we’ll attend a rally for a report as well.
We attended today and there will be a report to follow later with some observations, photos, and video. Once again, if an Obama/Biden rally is in the area, I will be attending for the same kind of reporting.
Some you haven’t even seen my reporting and yet I see some naysayers which is absurd. The reporting on this site is down the middle with the exception of the commentary section which provides points of view from both sides of the political spectrum.
Give me a chance, people! I think you’ll enjoy my write-up.
