Senator Obama







Right after our Boston event we drove through the rain, through the darkness, and through the barrage of trucks to get a chance to spend some time with Senator Barack Obama of Illinois. The drive from Boston to Washington DC was not just another walk in the park; between getting lost in Queens, getting caught in the morning traffic, and stalled by the police near the Capitol, it took us a hefty eight hours to get to DC.

The security near the Capitol is amazing, if not a little intimidating. While we were driving towards the Senator's office, two police cars immediately surrounded us and promptly directed us out of the area. The Generation MIX crew had to quickly walk to the office on foot, while Matt Kelley and Amanda Ereckson of MAVIN drove the RV to a more suitable parking area. We barely made it in time for the appointment.

Speaking with Senator Obama was an amazing experience in itself. Even though the interview itself was short, it was well worth the eight additional hours on the road. Senator Obama has an air about him that commands respect. Many people look up to him, and it's easy to see why; he is an extremely charismatic person with an intelligence of the utmost articulacy. He had many interesting things to say about the multiracial experience in America, especially since his views are coming from a person with much political power. We can't go into specifics here, but be on the lookout for the interview in a future issue of MAVIN Magazine!
