On the Campaign Trail Again!

I've been involved in some fascinating campaigns over the years, but this one looks set be be something else altogether.

Landed in Washington DC yesterday afternoon, and hit the ground running. Actually, I hit a sports bar in Arlington, but that did give me a little time to chat to people, and to check out the local news.

The team and I also had an interesting meeting today at the Capitol Hill Club, which is a private club for Republicans on - you guessed it - Capitol Hill.Informed opinion in both places, and in the media, is that Obama is going to take it.

Quote of the day: In the Senate chamber a staffer was asked "Where did Obama sit when he was a Senator?"

His reply: "Who?"

Then a long haul through Friday evening traffic down Interstate 95 to Richmond, Va, the former capital of the Confederacy. Tomorrow the real work begins....
