only the early gym rats get to see barack obama

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.

    I shook his hand when he was in town last week. And to answer your question about the bench press… I think you have him beat… he had kind of a weak, dead-fish handshake. Not impressive. Still voting for him, of course.

    Some up-close and personal pics of the man himself:
