Sign waving in Highlands Ranch

I finally had some free time today, so I spent two hours waving Obama signs on Broadway just south of C-470.

My (admittedly) unscientific observations about the folks who responded:

  • Among the folks who expressed an opinion, Obama supporters outnumbered McCain supporters by about a 2-1 margin.
  • I got three obscene gestures, two from Joe the plumber clones and one from a white-haired guy in a Cadillac Escalade.
  • Two guys yelled "Communist" as they drove buy, and one guy in a BMW Z3 tried to tell me that I would regret my choice.
  • The Obama supporters seemed quite upbeat, with lots of shouting and cheering. The McCain supporters (with a few exceptions) were pretty subdued.
My shoulders are sore from holding my arms up that long, but it was a beautiful afternoon and a lot of fun! Maybe I should have run for HD43 again this year. 2008 might be a pretty good year to be a Democrat in Highlands Ranch!
