With Obama in Fairfield

He is that tall. My T-shirt is from back in the days of walking precints for Congressman Lane Evans and state senator Obama who was running in the primary for the US Senate. I'm sure he wore that same blue-grey shirt way back then too.

First Obama for President Pin?

My wife and I attended the reception after Obama was sworn in to the US Senate back in 2005. I had ordered this button and had them delivered to our hotel. The buttons didn't show up until the afternoon but I was able to present one to his wife Michelle. I believe the date was 4 Jan 2005. Can anyone beat that date?

Obama with Obamalac, Fairfield IA 3 July 2007

His smile is genuine and he is genuine! He has seen the car before but this is the first time he saw it with the Obama 08 decals.
