Open line

Posted By on Sat, Oct 25, 2008 at 3:14 PM

Early startup. I'm going to stand in the early vote line and get 'er done today no matter what. I cruised three polling places this morning and the enormous lines were too long to join at that point.

I heard an interesting report about the Pine Bluff Clinton rally this morning. Anybody out there attend?

UPDATE: Just got a call from Jonesboro. The former president used his speaking opportunities for Barack Obama today at both Pine Bluf and Jonesboro to urge those present to vote AGAINST INITIATED ACT 1. He said, according to a person at both speeches, it was bad for Arkansas. He was encouraged to make the state by actress Mary Steenburgen, who made the trip, too. (It was reported to me that she didn't speak, but a reader said she did in Jonesboro.)
