Yesterday was a very intense day in the political world. Barack Obama spoke to hundreds of College Democrats at the annual convention held here in South Carolina. Appealing to the common desire for change Obama said:

“Its time for a new generation in Washington… It’s time to get past the old debates that have divided us. Talks about the health care plan. If you graduate and you can’t get a job right away, you’re going to be able to stay on your plans insurance into your 25. I can’t problem that they’ll let you live at home until that age, but I can assure you you’ll have access to health insurance.”

The heat outside can’t compete with the intensity inside the Russell House on the campus of the University of South Carolina. This weekend, USC’s campus will be the center of the political world as candidates come prepared to get their messages out to the students. Pulling into campus, I immediately noticed the massive Obama posters all over the place–and inside it gets even better. Students for Barack Obama and Obama for America have put together a first class presentation. I even ran into some folks from Rock with Barack and kept them pumped about our fall voter registration efforts! It looks like it’s going to be a good weekend.

I’ll keep you posted about the details and let you know how the Senators speech goes!

Until then…Rock with Barack!
