We were eating out last night at one of our favorite local restaurants – Coyote's Adobe Cafe – when we overheard the folks behind us talking about Obama. One guy told his group that Obama was coming to Springfield again on Saturday.

Sure enough we read the same at Chatter this morning. We were very excited when he came the first time, but we didn't get in line soon eough. It was a no-go for us. Our 8-year-old daughter cried. This is her first memorable presidential election and she is getting excited. She and her friends at school do political chants during recess. I find that adorable.

Our plan is to have her cover the event, and giver her perspective on the entire affair. That is, if we can get tickets. I think it will be interesting to see what an 8-year-old thinks of it all.

(6:23 a.m. UPDATE: KY3 just reported that he will be at MSU at 9 o'clock. They didn't say if that was a.m. or p.m.)

(UPDATE 7:51 Friday: Obama will be at Parkview football field @ 9 p.m. tomorrow.)

It's p.m. The campaign has a huge get-out-the-vote effort on Saturday during the day and they don't want the appearance to conflict with it.
