It's the Little Things
I am Secret Service certified. I wanted a button or a certificate but they just laughed at me. The best part of being cleared by the Secret Service is that I got to follow our future president around. It's odd seeing people who usually draw a crowd as a crowd.
We were at Nick Hanauer's beautiful home in the Highlands. The room is full of celebrities and business barons. I had been to several of Obama's speeches but this one was the best, especially when he answered some hard hitting questions from the crowd.
After his speech he went in to the kitchen and made it a point to thank the people who worked behind the scenes.
