I’m Going To See Obama Today, But Best Rally I Ever Attended Was Hope, Heston, Ford & Reagan

Barack Obama will be in Houston today and I’m going to go see him.

He’ll be appearing at the Toyota Center this evening. ( I’m proud to say I twice voted against public funding of the Toyota Center.)  

I’m looking forward to seeing Mr. Obama, but the best political rally I ever attended was a Republican rally in 1980 at the Cincinnati Convention Center. 

In the final week before Election Day, this rally featured Bob Hope, ( Below with Barbara Eden.)

 Charlton Heston,

 

 Gerald Ford, ( Here with Leonid Brezhnev)

 

And Ronald Reagan

 

 I was 13 years old and it was a lot of fun.
