Excuse Me, Excuse Me, Excuse Me
This little old lady named Opal Lee is an 81-year old Fort Worth community activist. She is a tenacious senior activist, who elbowed her way through the crowd of 15,000 people inside Dallas Reunion Arena, excusing herself as she went, just to look Barack Obama in the eyes and, alas, drop a little note in his pocket.
I am still trying to figure out what the note said.
Eddie Griffin once ran Opal Lee's community-based computer school, which is now converted to an Obama field office... my war room. On Tuesday, we will formerly open the office.
Barack Obama will be in Fort Worth on Thursday evening.
