Hillary NOW in Asheville,NC
The Hillary Now organizational meeting in Asheville went great! When I let Bob Kunst know I was back in this area and mentioned Bele Chere.(A downtown festivalin Asheville NC that gets tri-state coverage with over 350,000people to attend).We at first wanted to do a booth at the festival.It was way to late and there was over 300 on the waiting list! We went with what we had and Bob (Hillary NOW) decided to come into this area anyway! We got together the first organizational meeting in this area for Hillary '08. We had a small turn out but literarily had only a couple of days to announce this event.The word must have got out some as we did have a few protesters.What astonished me the most has been the reaction to our Hillary effort in this area afterwards.After our meeting and people began to return Home from work etc.I personally have had dozens of people approach me for more information about Hillary Now and about a possible Hillary run for the presidency in 2008! I have been absent from this,my Hometown area for 2 1/2 years.When I left, this area was an extremely conservative area.That combined with the events at that time if you mentioned Hillary you would get laughed at.Now as people learn more about Hillary and her vision for America with the great Senate record that she has and the poor record of this administration and the Republican congress I have never seen such interest and hope that she will run in 2008!I live further up in the Mountains of Western North Carolina.An area that is even more conservative.When people see my HillaryNow,Hillary 2008 bumper stickers they come up to me.I think ohh no,here it comes.Attacks etc.What I have got in reality has been "where did you get that","I hope she runs" This morning I had an elderly lady come up to me at a gas station and say "America Needs Her" She couldn't have said it better! It matters not if you are a Republican,A Democrat,independent.Liberal,Conservative.What matters is the wrong direction this country has taken.The support I have seen in this area this weekend for Hillary 08 has been overwhelming! After the organizational meeting I had to return 'back to the hills' and finish up with my unpacking and my return Home to the mountains that I love.What better Homecoming could one have ask for! Hillary,I hope you read this as if (it seems apparent you do)have this kind of underlying support here who can imagine the untouched support that hasn't been tapped here and all over the country!I understand Bob(HillaryNow) has had great success during the Bele Chere festival over the week-end.Let him tell you about that.It has been wonderful meeting Bob Kunst and working with HillaryNow.Com If I can help further in this area let me know!
