29. That is a very nice area

In '04 I stayed for 2 months with a Dem couple in Upper Arlington who were nice enough to put me up while I volunteered as a kerrytraveler from CA in the campaign's Franklin County Field Office (which was located in the union hall by the steel mill).

I did a double-take at the mention of Dublin because I have another friend in that area, but he's a retired coal miner from the Sardis area and his townhouse isn't that upscale. Turns out he's in Powell, near W. Powell Rd. & Sawmill Pkwy.

You're probably right about the quiet Obama support there this year. Franklin Co. went for Obama over McCain 60% to 39.1% (a margin of more than 116,000 votes), which was better than Kerry did there (his margin was some 41,000 votes, 53.6% to 45.6% for Bush).

It would be interesting to find out exactly why your neighbor isn't supporting Romney. If you do find out, be sure to let us know. Inquiring minds and all that...
