Inauguration Coverage: Obama’s Helpers & MLK Community Service Day

Who do I think I am?  After finally getting my Biden ball tickets yesterday from the Washington Convention Center, I decided to set up the Bowllan Blog office…right in the lobby of the WCC! I sat there for 4-hours just 
waiting working, watching, writing and wondering…if I’ll ever get Internet access? People came by to introduce themselves to me and it was pretty amazing how many people I knew. I also met some amazing people who are volunteering their time for Mr. Obama’s campaign and I found it fitting to share their stories today, on this day of community service remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 
Bruce McBarnette, founder of Art of Obama, Zakiyyah Ali, a teacher at the High School for Global Citizenship in Brooklyn, NY and LION volunteer, Maria Larriuz were all on hand yesterday to help Obama.
