Some of you may remember that I hoped to talk to the President Wednesday night.

It didn't happen.......I didn't even get through. Disappointed doesn't even begin to describe how I felt...

But.

I was ventilating about it on facebook, and my good friend DFW said he would see what he could do...This is what happened:


Well, I didn't get to talk to the President, but close enough! I got a call from one of the folks who works for the President and who is part of the campaign outreach. We talked for nearly 10 minutes, and covered a raft of topics.

I told her that I thought he had done really well in the second debate, complete with a total grasp of the facts. And I specifically mentioned how well he put Romney down, with control and yet with fire. Truly impressive.

On the other hand, I did mention that I want Obama to stop compromising with the Republicans. I reminded her of how Boehner and McConnell stated publicly that they were determined to make Obama a one term President, and that they were doing their best to do just that. I said I wanted him to be stronger and more forceful in his next term.

And I did mention DU... It was a very cool phone call!

You got further along than anybody else. There was no Q&A that I remember.

I don't think he's even home very often. I heard his job involves a lot of travel and meetings.

I was really glad I remembered it, and even gladder for the opportunity to say it!

Thanks, sweetie...
