John Edwards Stumps for Heath Shuler

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Over 400 people weathered a steady downpour outside Henderson County Democratic Party Headquarters to hear John Edwards urge voters to work hard for Heath Shuler. I arrived a couple minutes late to the 12:30 p.m. affair, which also served as a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity, the Housing Assistance Corp. and the Mainstay women’s shelter. The rain was falling, but everyone stuck around to hear Heath Shuler talk about his plan to offer $1,500 tax credits to first time home buyers and to hear John Edwards talk about Shuler and a better America.

The Henderson County Democrats were energized and ready to do all they can to get each and every Shuler voter to the polls this November. The One America crowd was also well represented and, despite Edwards' studied coyness regarding whether he'll be running for President, handed out Edwards '08 buttons.

Vloggers, TV, radio, print media, and assorted online miscreants were also in attendance.

Photobucket those pics

I do not want to miss pictures of Heath. Blogger is still blocking pics so folks won't ...aheeemmm...borrow bandwidth. If those pics are of Edwards and Shuler you better get them up pronto or there will be a mutiny. I loved the video of the crowd greeting Edwards. Shuler's public speaking will develop. I think he's doing fine and with some practice he'll be awesome. I have a friend in her sixties who says all he has to do is stand and look pretty and he has her vote. But then...that's not what you want to hear, right?

It's my first time at Photobucket, and I hope I did everything right. Can you see the images now?

Yay! Yes and they are wonderful

I love the fact that so many people in your "conservative" area would stand out in the rain to greet the next Representative from the 11th.

Hot or Not...

So, side by side, which one is prettier?
I saw Edwards when he keeps his hair cut short.

Naaah...not hot..not not

It's just fun to watch some of these first-time enthusiastic candidates. I like watching Larry and there are a few from other states. Heath is used to crowds, but this is a different kind of attention and it seems to catch them off guard sometimes. Larry told me that it's sometimes hard to get used to having so many people he's never met supporting him so enthusiastically. It's hard to put my finger on it, but I think it's certain candidates seem to enjoy the journey a little more than the guys who have to go through it every two years.

Oh...and to answer your question. Edwards...by a long shot.

I Wishhhhhhhhhhhh I could

I Wishhhhhhhhhhhh I could have been there!

Vlog on this NC event will be up Thur am on DKos!

It was great to meet you!

Excellent CJ report.

I will be posting a vlog report on DailyKos tomorrow morning and hope everyone will stop in and say hello. Shuler himself may post. This is our chance to let people know, there are lots of Democrats in NC. We're not all conservatives down here in the South and we will turn this state blue!

Also, you wont want to miss the short interview with Screwy Hoolie, BlueNC blogger!

Thanks and hope to see everyone there.
