Get ready to see a Democratic presidential campaign the likes of which this state has never seen.

Starting next week, some 400 specially trained Barack Obama campaign "fellows" will fan out across Florida, including the Tampa Bay area, for an intensive six weeks of registering voters, mobilizing volunteers, as well as working to bring Hillary Rodham Clinton supporters into the fold.

The Obama campaign has 20 paid organizers in the state compared to John McCain's two and within days is expected to name its Florida campaign team. With more than 150,000 Florida supporters signed up for volunteer duty, the campaign is talking about an unprecedented voter mobilization effort.

Obama will get creamed in Florida.

Eyeball are you listening!

He's was in St Louis last night and still here this am. Today he's playing nurse. No kidding, he was at Barnes-Jewish Hospital this morning working with a nurse for an houjr and talking to sick people (what else are you going to find in a hospital) about their health insurance.

What a poser! Sounds like he's going to "do a job" all around the country in a variety of professions. Oh please!! :rolleyes::eek:

It's all about striking the pose. not about knowing anything. I dread the learning curve we will have to survive through if he wins. :(
