On my way through perimeter security today amid all the protesters and well wishers, we found a group that most Georgians can identify with - Rednecks4Obama. We stopped for photos and bumper stickers which Daryl and I will distribute to our favorite red necks upon return. Chuck Byrd, your name is already on one of them!
While it was great to have some quick fellowship with some guys with a southern drawl, it was even better to hear their slogan - "Workin' for the man who'll do more for the workin' man." I know that's why I'm a Democrat and why I support Barack Obama. I hope my fellow Georgia red necks will be proud to do the same!
