Campaign Headquarters


We stopped by Senator Obama's Nashville Campaign Headquarters today so I could get a photo of the action.  It was the first time I've been to any campaign headquarters.  I was pretty surprised that they were out of bumper stickers, yard signs, and most buttons.

Have you ever gone to a campaign headquarters?

Hi Chris! Sorry for the delay in coming here, but these last weeks have been hectic; no, I’m not talking about the financial/economic crisis… ;)) Anyhow, it seems I'm the first here today!
Loved to see the pumpkin, and have been to several campaign HQ, many years ago...

I've never been to a campaign headquarters, but I have been to the Republican National Convention. Well, at least outside of the build to take photos of what was going on there. I was reminded of the fencing and the security that was needed when the RNC was in town. Wow, that was an intense four days in St Paul.

No buttons lady, but would you like to wrap this giant balloon chain around your neck??? YOU BETCHA! How much more of that can we take?

OK, so this will make me old. I remember growing up in Illinois on the east side of St. Louis when Jimmy Carter was running. The campaign rented a store in a near by strip center. I spent the entire summer and fall at that place, running around getting under people. I was only 12 I guess. We used to ride our bikes around passing out Gimmy Jimmy buttons with his face and big teeth on them. My Mom and Grandma used to help out up there and on election day they would drive the elderly to vote. Since my name is Jim, I started making people call me Jimmy. How corny, to hit on your post for today.

No, not really. I'm not a citizen so I can't vote.

But I have met Hillary Clinton once, at a parade in town. Well, more like I saw her less than 2 feet away from me. :-)
