I've finally learned that searching for 'undecideds' at political rallies is pretty much a road leading to nowhere.
When I approached Norleen - who shared a birthday with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - to ask if she was undecided, she was taken aback, as if I everyone should have known what was right underneath her black winter coat.
Because it wasn't raining balancing all the technical stuff seemed much easier and I managed to talk to far more people than I did at the McCain Rally.
Here's Travis, 24, a former Republican.
My conversation with Larry, 56, had a false start after we were both distracted by a mob of people running for what we all thought were Obama t-shirts but turned out to be free 'Clean Coal' caps.
Our conversation resumes once Larry returns, cap in hand.
Adam, 36, Edward, 63, and Diane, 62 came to the Rally together.
Colleagues Lisa, 48 and Bernie, 50 overheard me asking someone else in the crowd about the difference between Democrats and Republicans and I just had the sense they'd have an opinion on this.
Joyce, 54, had already done some volunteer work for the Obama campaign, and I think it was because of our brief association that I was able to enter through a side door which gave me such a good view of the stage (& Clinton). Thanks Joyce!
J.L., 60 and Susan, 59. J.L. is actually wearing the 'Clean Coal' hat Larry ran off for. He was also the only person I've spoken to who expressed complete surprise that the rest of the world was so interested in this election.

Pat, 49 and Terry, 46. Turns out Terry grew up a few streets away from me in Steelton, Pennsylvania.
