Solidarity on the Highway

The car I drive to work still sports a DEAN for America bumper sticker.

I expect a Kerry-Edwards one will be joining it soon, but for now there's just the navy, white and yellow badge of continued support for the man who fired us up.

In slow-moving traffic this morning, I heard a double honk on my right flank.

I turned my head to see a solid, mostly bald fella with glasses rolling his window down to say something. I cracked mine open; he was smiling.

"Thank you for energizing our party! I was so happy to see him speak at the convention!"

I raised my fist, smiled back and shouted, "Go Kerry!", and he was gone down his exit, with a Veterans for Kerry sticker on his packed-to-bulging trunk.

I have a Kerry voter on loan from Dean sticker for my car. I finally took the DEAN sign in the window down about three weeks ago and replaced it with Hoeffel. Ginny Schrader goes up as soon as I make one. Cars are excellent ways to get the word out. Someone came up to my car on Thursday to shake my hand and say that he likes the Kerry sticker - so that was cool.

My Dean bumper sticker is still on my car too.

I got an e-mail from somebody in the Kerry campaign about two weeks saying they were sending me a Kerry bumper sticker.

It hasn't arrived yet.

I'm thinking I'll just leave the Dean bumper sticker alone.
