Note to self: wear flip flops at conventions, these four inch red heels just aren't cutting it. Ouch.
January 20, 2008 -- Citizen Kate scores a seat at Barack Obama's Inauguration, but realizes that having a ticket doesn't mean you'll get in. I made it. The big day. Barack Obama's inauguration. Joe Biden will be here too. Along with Jamie Foxx and Beyonce. I can't wait to meet them. A friend of mine from facebook, Ben, whom I never met before, hooked me up with two tickets to the inauguration. One in the silver standing area. And one in the yellow SEATING area! Ben is my new political boyfriend. And I didn't have to put out. That's right. I got a seat. I can't believe it! I know I'm going to get close to Barack. And can't wait to see what Michelle is going to wear. I chose two coats. And a high pair of boots. I also wore my special inauguration hat with my Tarina Tarantino headband. Note to self: Getting an inauguration ticket doesn't mean that you'll get in. Seriously. A lot of people with tickets were turned away.
Citizen Kate enjoys Obama's presidential victory and realizes that with every victory comes a loss. I totally remember moment that Barack officially won the position as the next President of the United States of America. Emotions were high. Everyone was crying around me. Oprah was crying. And Barack spoke. There was an air of disbelief and relief in Grant Park that night. One man's victory is another man's sorrow. Note to self: Nobody really "wins" in politics cause once the votes are tallied, it's time for the real work.
Citizen Kate waits and waits and waits for the final tally on the Presidential race. A lot of people asked me about how amazing it was to be in Grant Park the night of the election and Obama's victory. It was incredible. Except for the waiting. Seriously. They made us wait for hours. They didn't even have refreshments. I did the best I could waiting for Barack's win. I passed time with Sway from MTV and AJ Calloway who's a really good looking reporter. I also ran into Richard Roeper, the movie critic. He really knew a lot of politics and voting in Chicago. And he made some predictions about Obama's administration picks. Note to self: Sometimes you need to be patient for good things to finally happen in politics.
Citizen Kate arrives at Grant Park on election night in hopes of finally reaching Barack Obama. I'm getting ready for the inauguration and found the tapes from Obama's Grant Park victory. I wanted to share my experience before I head to DC. Election night was the night of all nights. What a historic event to be part of. Of course, I was there in Springfield and Denver. I had media credentials and a party dress. I was ready to reach Barack Obama and Joe Biden. The only thing I needed to do was figure out how to get around the press barricade. Note to self: The media doesn't always have the best access to the candidates.
