Obama is in Santa Barbara today to do some campaigning, and he gave a speech at Santa Barbara City College at lunchtime. It was the first time I've seen him in person, and heard him live. He certainly has a gift of communication, and I was impressed with his presence and ability to rally people to him. I've been unsure as to how I would vote in the Democratic primary, but having had the experience today I was swayed towards his corner. Here are some pics. A beautiful day looking out over Santa Barbara. Speaking to the crowd. High-five to the greeting line.
