Seeing Obama Tonight

I'm not sure if you are allowed to ask questions, but lets pretend you had a chance to ask him three questions tonight in front of everyone. What would those questions be?

PS: That's pretty awesome that you have the chance to see him. Hopefully you have a great time.

-Why hasn't there been action in Congress on the BP Oil Spill?
-When are we going to finally leave Afghanistan?
-When will tax loopholes for corporations be closed?

I missed him when he came through town here in Pennsylvania when he first got elected. He came to the hot dog shop in the city that is our "most popular" one and they've got pictures and everything. It's pretty cool.

Jealous that you get to see him in person.

That's awesome, Kaz...I look forward to hearing about it.

Your 3 questions are pretty awesome, too. I wish you could ask them.

Ask him about Lybia. I thought he was opposed to the use of force without congressional approval. Now our military is engaged in another country?

Nah, don't ask that. The crowd might turn on you. Hahaha I just had a typo where crowd was crown.

Shook hands with Gavin Newsom, former mayor of SF, current Lt. Gov of CA. Nancy Pelosi walked right past me. Was awesome.

That sounds pretty cool. I'm a fan of the Gavinator, although I voted for Jerry Brown in the primary. Newsom will make a good successor to Brown, judging by everything I've seen.

Yeah, he can really work a crowd. Comes off as nice and really not as sleazy as he looks.

Also in attendance: Reps. Barbara Lee, Mike Honda, Jim McNerny, John Giramendi.
