Whenever Barack Obama is in Portland campaigning (which he has been on numerous occasions this year), he works out at the same gym as I do. Early in the morning. And whenever I set myself the goal to work out before I go into the office, I can't get out of bed. So already I have missed two opportunities to see how Barack Obama would measure up against me in the bench press. That's really all I would want out of the deal. A picture of Barack Obama spotting me on the bench press. Once that happens, I will officially endorse the guy. Anyhow I hope Hilary Clinton stays in the race just long enough for him to come back to Portland one more time. And I will be working out in the mornings from now on.
