I am a retired healthcare worker and a lifelong Republican who supports Barack Obama. I could not support George W. Bush and I became very disillusioned by the handling of the Iraq War. After the swift-boating of John Kerry, I started looking for someone I could support positively rather than vote for the lesser of two evils. I started my blog on my.barackobama.com two days after he declared in Springfield, Illinois on February 10, 2007. I met Barack briefly at a fundraiser in Park City, Utah on August 5, 2007. It was the day after his 46th birthday. A cake was presented to him and we all sang happy birthday. I gave him a birthday card and declared that I was a day late, but not a dollar short. We both laughed.
