I'm a little tired this morning, after doing two speeches last night here in Washington. Both were for Democrat fundraisers, and for me and Big Boy, it was like old times.
The first event was at some women's museum, and they just loved seeing Big O. After mingling for a while and making sure Valerie Jarrett wasn't being anti-social by sitting in a corner staring at her Blackberry, we dashed down the street to the Warner Theater. It's a beautiful old theater, and was a great venue for this fundraiser, albeit a tad big.
When we got to the Warner, just about every donor from Big O's presidential campaign was waiting for us. All seven of them met us in the lobby, and surprised us by bringing the 18.5 million credit, cash, and gift cards they'd used during the campaign. The only thing that would have made it better was if they'd brought the old WBT-1000 magnetic-stripe credit-card reader we used on all of them. We nicknamed her "Swisher," and I hear she's doing real well working in the ACORN office in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
