Election 2008...The Selma Campaign
Today's presidential election holds a lot of significance for Selmians since BOTH major party nominees campaigned here. I just happened to be around to personally snap (well, fight my way through the crowds) their photographs and present them especially for you in today's post.
While Alabama isn't a "Swing State," its history in the Voting Rights Movement attracts politicians.
Republican John McCain (top photo) brought his "Time for Action" tour to Selma last April, and Democrat Barack Obama (bottom photo) spoke at Brown Chapel AME Church during the 2007 Bridge Crossing Jubilee.
While polls have shown Obama leading, the only poll that really counts is the one today, so please go VOTE!
(On a more personal note, my dear husband has the distinction of turning ?? years old on Election Day, and he's still got my vote! Happy Birthday!)
