No matter what political party you stand for, there is only one president of our country. And on Saturday, I was able to go down to the Summerfest grounds and see President Obama speak in front of a few thousand people. Even though I waited in line for over an hour and a half in the wind, and a few scattered showers, it was well worth it.
It was a moment I'll never forget. When I was in sixth grade, my dad and grandpa took me to see Bill Clinton speak at the Mecca downtown. Since Clinton's speech I knew how badly I wanted to see a President speak again. Their charisma and the energy of the crowd is like no other, especially with an election around the corner.
Whatever happens come November, I know my children will learn about President Obama in school one day. And I can tell them I was there, I saw him right in front of me and I lived it! It was the chance of a lifetime.
