Monday Morning Open Thread - 4/28

Good Morning! I know we're all tired. Driving back in the rain was awful last night. It was raining so hard I couldn't see the lane markers and the trucks were barreling around us even in the driving rain, but Katie was chatting about all the really interesting people she'd met and I was still excited about seeing everyone, so the time flew by.

I'll have video and pictures up later of the blogger bash.

What's on your mind?

Bash full

Hi everyone!

Just a quick note from a tired blogger to thank all who attended our First Annual BlueNC Blogger Bash in Chapel Hill today. What an amazing and inspiring collection of wonderful people you are!

Thanks to the excellent candidates who took time out of their busy schedules to be with us. When I have more brain cells available, I'll link to all their websites. In the meantime, a special a note of appreciation to Judge Bob Orr, Republican candidate for governor. It was a generous gesture on Bob's part to step into our blue venue for an afternoon of fellowship and fun. He is a good guy.

All in all, the day gave me much to think on many fronts. I'm not entirely sure what we're up to here, but I do know we're up to something big - something that could become really important in our state and in our world. You give me hope.

Bill Clinton in Monroe

It's been a while since I had the chance to go hear Bill Clinton sell his wife's economic plan to supporters in Monroe, NC. I'm sorry it has taken me so long to update you on the event.

First, I have to say that my overall impression was so positive. He spoke highly of Barack Obama and said he would make a good president he just though Hillary would make a better president. Unlike what we see on the national media, he was very positive. I kept waiting for the digs at Barack Obama, but they never came.
