Barack on Super Tuesday Eve - Hartford Civic Center

Yes I was there - wild horses couldn't have kept me from it! What a beautiful, colorful, vibrant crowd it was - what a moment in the history of our time. He is so intelligent, aware, respectful of people. A woman in the surging crowd apparently fainted or started to. He halted his comments, pointed to the disturbance, and asked people to give her some space, to make sure she was okay. Hearing that she needed water, he tossed a bottle from the supply under the podium, and the crowd carried it to her. Seeing she had been cared for, he went on with the program without missing a beat, because the beat includes all those who need to be lifted up - and that includes me. What a night!

With hope for us all,
