Put Down Your Coffee First
Last night on the ABC7 Eyewitness News out of LA they had election coverage from Las Vegas of the primaries and caucuses. As part of their background reporting they talked to their driver who expressed his support for Obama based upon positions and thought it was wonderful that a fellow black man could be in the White House. Limo driving was actually his third career. Until last summer he had been a mortgage broker in the hot hot Las Vegas market but that all dried up in August. The reporter proceeded to query him as to if he will be voting in the caucus. The driver replied, "Actually I cannot vote owning to a previous felony conviction." :Prior to being a mortgage broker he was a car thief. You can't make this stuff up.
