I left the house very early the morning of March 20 and went by McDonalds to get breakfast. I sat down to eat in the restaurant. It's in a poor neighborhood, but for some reason all of the clients this morning were poor white people. They were talking about Barack Obama, who had just visited the city where I live (Charlotte, NC). I observed the following quietly from my seat as I ate alone.
"Are you going to vote for Obama?"
"I'd die first!"
Then they all started chatting again.
"You know Bill's coming to town?"
"God, there was a President."
"I wisht he was our President now!"
I swear to Jove. Pretty much quoted verbatim.
