….where’s the video of this?
Jean Weiss, an 82-year-old woman from North Carolina, has gotten closer to joining an Obama ticket than anyone else to-date.
During a town hall in Wilmington, an exuberant Weiss stood up and received the biggest cheer in the room when she launched into a long speech about all the reasons she supports Obama.
“Don’t hit on Hillary,” Weiss advised, “Bring us all back. Let her do that stuff. Leave her alone, you don’t need to do that. You are higher than that.”
“Will you be my running mate?” Obama answered. “That’s my running mate there, she’s got me fired up!” (ABC News 4/28/08)
Now that’s an ad that could resonate.
