Shirt: Obama 08 – can be purchased through Etsy. Cool design, huh? Maarten, who runs an Etsy shop sent this to me. Check out Maarten’s full shop here.

1. Work day, final debate –
John McCain is angry, isn’t he? Before the debate, L and I were talking about this week’s Frontline, which gave a fresh perspective on both Obama and McCain and how they came to be our candidates. I haven’t finished watching the program, but L says he almost feels sorry for McCain. Apparently Frontline shows that McCain really did used to be a maverick, and even considered changing parties, but ultimately still wanted to be president and caved becoming an advocate for the Bush policies, so he could make another run for president and appeal to the conservative base. It doesn’t seem to be working out so well for him now. The program gave us new info about Obama too – and tells us just exactly what he did as a community organizer. At one point it shows a man from Chicago laughing about the fact that Obama’s 2004 convention speech is the same speech he had been giving to small groups (sometimes as few as 10 people) in Chicago. I think it’s awesome that the speech was truly his own words and experience. I love that Obama is so much more genuine than the average politician, and that he can stay calm even when faced with the anger and rage of John McCain. If you haven’t seen it, you can watch the Frontline program online.

    I just ordered one in light blue. Can’t wait until it gets here!!! It’s a fabulous design. Though I’m a little unsure of the sizing so I asked him to send me some dimensions so I can tell him what size I want. What size is yours?

I've made a commitment to wear an Obama shirt each day until the election - a total of 60 days. I document each day here. The faqs will tell you more.
