Today I had my first meeting with the a Hill person.
A saleswoman noticed my Obama button and opened up with, 'I am a Democrat and have always voted Dem but I will not vote for Obama. I don't know what to do. I am not sure that this country can take another four years of Republican rule.' I shook her hand and asked her if she had been a Hillary supporter and she nodded yes. I told her that I had been a Kucinich supporter and I understood how she felt. I noted that a lot of us have had to make a move and that Obama seemed like a good choice to me. When I asked her why she felt the way she did she had no answer. I tried my best to bridge the gap today but honestly, I am exhausted by it all.
