Democratic Spring Banquet
For Hillary, it was US representative from Arkansas Marion Berry. He was very eloquent and spoke with a real down-home attitude. He explained that he didn't want to have his grandchildren ask him why he didn't do anything when he had the chance to change the way the country is going. (I have to agree big time there). He has known the Clintons for decades and said there is no way Hillary is going after our guns. That's one thing all the fear-mongers keep telling. I'm sure you've all heard it. It's against the Second Amendment and she won't even try. He also knows Obama and McCain. Of McCain, he said, "He means no harm to anyone, but he has absolutely no business in th Oval Office, but for a very short visit." Berry also was happy to sign his fact sheet.
There were several candidates for the 5th Congressional District. The current incumbent is retiring. The only one I had a chance to talk to is Rick Vilello. He's the current Mayor of Lock Haven and seems to be very sincere. I still haven't decided who to vote for though.
I was able to add a few new pins to my political pin collection - one for Hillary, one for Vilello and two different Obama ones.
