I am very excited that the McCain - Palin team will be appearing on Monday at the Delaware County Court House in Media.Lisa and I worked the phones at the local McCain headquarters and earned tickets to the event. Mom and Ralph also have been working at the headquarters and also have tickets. Ralph, because he is such a special guy, has a VIP ticket.
I was struck by the fact that the last time a GOP presidential candidate visited Media was in 1984. At that time my hero, President Reagan, resplendent in a brown suit, gave a great speech from the Court House steps. The atmosphere was electric and it was a thrill to see the President in person. As everyone knows, President Reagan went on to win 49 states and something like 513 electoral votes that year. Not bad for a guy who was considered to be too old. Also that year there was a woman running for Vice President, albeit on the Democratic ticket. May history repeat itself!
