This is not an art related post. I apologize. I feel like I witnessed a historical moment today. Presidential candidate Barack Obama held a rally in Portland today. I was lucky enough to attend. I stood 20 or 30 feet from quite possibly the first African American president of the United States. It felt good. Oregon will be a deciding factor in a history making presidential race. It feels good. Over 70,000 Oregonians came to see him speak. His message seems simple. Don't lie to the people. Represent the people. Make a better America. It feels very good.
