Okay, some of my pics from Nashua rally yesterday

Waiting on Main street about 10:30 am.



Kid's self-voting station.



The early, early, early birds got to sit down.



Waiting (still a long way to go, but didn't realize it at the time).



Secret Service



Panoramic view of rally



James Taylor - amazing of course



I couldn't actually see the president (too short) but my son held my camera up high to take some pics.



I think every TALL man in New Hampshire moved in front of me as soon as the president took to the podium! It was a great experience anyway.

He also did a bit about how Romney didn't raise taxes in Massachusetts, just FEES and he listed a few of them. Made a joke about additional fees for birth certificates, how that would have impacted him personally.

caused a slight traffic jam in the line, because so many people (like me) just had to stop and take a picture of it.

I would have thought it was intentional! Everyone was so nice and friendly, one couldn't be irritated. When we were in line, an irate republican drove by and screamed "You are all NUTS!!!" Everyone just laughed at him. I really, really think overall Democrats are nicer, friendlier, and more polite than republicans.

I loved the kids' self-voting station, great idea!

Slightly OT but I certainly understood your point re "I think every TALL man in New Hampshire moved in front of me as soon as the president took to the podium! The same thing used to happen to me in the old movie theaters, it was almost a guarantee a tall person with 'big' hair would sit in front of me, lol.

I'm sure the President was so disappointed that he couldn't get Meatloaf!

What amazed me was James Taylor sounded every bit as good as he did forty years ago and unlike Meatloaf, he didn't sing off-key.

I know what you mean about the tall men. My camera had a much better view than I did! Good thing I have long arms...

who is taller than me and has longer arms!

He felt badly that I couldn't actually see Obama and he kept trying to find me a good spot, but I was just happy to be there AND I could see James Taylor most of the time.

A week or so later, we went to Concord and saw the president there with Bill Clinton and Jeanne Shaheen.
