East Rutherford, NJ 2.4.08 – On this day, Senator and President Elect Barack Obama was speaking at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, NJ in support of his Presidential Campaign. Admittedly I hadn’t voted much in the past. Obama sounded very intriguing and I needed to check him out in person. A friend and myself entered through the press entrance with no press creds and BS’d our way in to the event. I ended up standing on the Press riser with all the news cameras about 70ft straight back from the podium. Local politicians opened up the day which was then followed up by supporters Robert DeNiro, Ted and Caroline Kennedy.
