...Not only did I get my picture with Pennsylvania Gubernatorial hopeful Lynn Swann, I walked around with him for about an hour or so as he shook hands and worked the crowd.
When I handed one (older) woman a flyer she sneered, "I'm voting for Casey". To which I politely replied, "Well that's okay, you can still vote for Mr. Swann because he's not running against Casey." When she walked away I said, "And there's your informed voting base..."
Lynn Swann seemed like a real decent, personable guy. I was a little surprised at how strong his opinions are about taxes and building PA's economy --he is definitely not just a famous face...he knows what he's talking about. He already had my vote because I *loathe* his opponent, but now he has my confident vote.
I wanted to ask him about the whole "Boy named Sue" phenomenon, but I chickened out... ;)
