In a visit to Los Angeles on Friday, Senator Barack Obama spoke at the California African-American Museum, adressing a crowd of more than 800 people. He was then joined by Ben Affleck at a news conference at the University of Southern California in an effort to promote California Proposition 87, the Clean Alternative Energy Act. From Monsters and Critics:
The Illinois Democrat delivered a speech in shirt sleeves at a campus rally with trailing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides, and up and comer statesman Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles. Obama is the son of a black father from Kenya and a white mother from Kansas, worlds and cultures apart, who electrified the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston as a speaker, and won his Senate race and in two short years catapulted from junior senator to Oprah approved presidential candidate and Time magazine’s cover story.
Yes folks, the only time you’ll find politics filtering its way into this blog will be if someone sneaks it in using a celebrity. It’s like someone hid our heart worm medication in our food bowl this morning.
