I am a Kentuckian, registered in Florida.  Today, I crossed the river into Ohio and volunteered to do campaign work for Obama in Cincinnati.  A number of Kentuckians are doing this since Kentucky is a done deal for the Republicans. Two things motivated me to go work for Obama. 

1.  The nomination of Joe Biden.  He was my first pick in the primaries.

2.  The nomination of Sarah Palin.  She was the reason I lost all respect for McCain.

This morning I was watching the news.  Saw an interview with Queen Noor.  Thought it was a shame that McCain did not think of her as a VP.  Smart woman, lots of kids, foreign policy experience, never asked for earmarks.
