On the Road

The Foxworthy Vote

Obama's tough primary contest against Hillary Clinton revealed he's got work to do to win over rural white voters. But if two guys standing on the side of the road in Rolla, Missouri right now are any indication, the Illinois Senator is making progress. They're holding a "REDNECKS for OBAMA" sign high and proud, with Obama ready to arrive in this town of 16,000 within the hour.

I was born and raised in Rolla... my parents (not rednecks) were at the Obama rally today, and were VERY encouraged to hear Obama's message. Thanks for putting us on map!
