On Saturday, I got to see the President of the United States. My favorite president. Barack Obama.
He was in Milwaukee for a campaign rally, just days before the elections. I was determined not to miss him this time. I saw him back during the last election when he was a candidate, but there is just something different about getting to see the sitting president. It was totally worth getting up really early on a Saturday, standing in line for three hours before the doors opened, followed by standing in the convention center for another two before anyone spoke. He may have only spoken for a short time, but it was totally worth it.

|The podium. We were only about 10-12 people back.|
|The screen behind Katy Perry's stage. I couldn't see her at all when she was performing, but she was pretty good.|
|MKE Mayor Barrett was one of the many speakers, although none of my other pictures turned out. Always had other people's heads/cameras/signs in the way. #shortpeopleproblems|
|Chris let me borrow his button.|
No matter what happens tomorrow, he is my president. And Saturday was an awesome experience. Katy Perry was good too.
I just hope that after Tuesday he can get some sleep - the poor guy is running a campaign and a country at the same time. He looks tired.
