So will I finally get to meet Santorum (at the Philadelphia GOP clam bake) or will some sad turn of events occur just to disappoint me?

Also, feel free to add my reaction if I do meet America's best Senator.  Tongue

No.  Like Moses and the Promised Land, Phil will not be able to meet Santorum.  This will be because Santorum will at the last second decide to instead visit his "home" in Pittsburgh when he learns that President Bush will make an unannounced appearance at the Philly GOP clam bake.

I'm sure you'll meet the guy, but you'll probably be too nervous to say anything.  Either that, you'll faint, or you'll crap your pants as soon as he shakes your hand.

Have a good time at the clam bake, though.  Be careful what you eat.  You wouldn't want to throw up on the senator.

You should meet him but don't get too nervous or you won't be able to again! Grin

That would be the correct response.

I know when I met a bunch of high level New York Dems (Clinton and Schumer included) I was icnredibly nervous and nearly died.  I was only 11 though, probbaly would be more calm now.

Why? Except for your height you still look 11, so why should things have changed?

I´m sure you do. I also had the chance to meet our president Heinz Fischer twice. In 2000, when he wasn´t president yet, we were on a school trip to Vienna and we were visiting our parliament and he came over to us to explain it to us. And then a couple of years later when he visited our town.

I was supposed to be with him all day, but circumstances prevented it, and when I finally did get to talk to him, he was on the way out the door and into the car, and it was a brief hand shake and hello.  I got to stand beside him for a while, though.  ha

But I have met a lot of big name political people, so just standing beside him did not impress me in the least.  Gotta say, he is a good speaker, though.

P.S.  When I met Dick Gephardt, well, first off, he made tons of eye contact with me, I think because he saw that I was looking at him, the whole time, but I wasn't claping liek a mechanical chimp at everything he said... then I got to speak with him one on one for a couple of minutes after words.  Since I was in a Teamsters hall, I didn't reveal my true identity, but it was a decent talk.

I don't blame Santorum, cause he was really on the go, but it was still kinda disappointing.

Yes, I finally met him. He was the last candidate to arrive and, of course, it was a big deal. Swann came in with his big bus. He seems like a good guy but I don't know how serious the race is to him anymore. He is very personable. We saw the usual bunch of candidates but then came Santorum...

My friend noticed his SUV pull up. Santorum got out and made his way to the entrance. He met some people and made his way over to the reporter that my friend and I were standing with (It was Tom Waring, Flyers). The reporter redircted Santorum to my friend and me. He shook my friend's hand and my friend proceeded to tell him about the time he had the Senator on the phone with one of his friends. "This is that friend," he said to Santorum. He turned to me, shook my hand, I said the usual "great to meet you, it is an honor, best of luck" and then asked for and got a picture with him. Well, it turns out my eyes were closed so I met up with him before while he was walking out with his staff. I said I didn't want to be a pain by asking for another picture but he was fine with it. That one came out great and will post it as soon as it is available. It was a great experience. He is a really big guy, by the way.

Santorum was very energetic. You can tell that he is an amazing campaigner. He got up on stage, worked up the crowd (he easily had the best reception) and met with a great amount of people. The whole day he had a smile on his face. We are pumped for this race!

Congratulations on finally meeting him!  He sounds a bit more personable and enthusiastic than Casey.

He is Casey x1,000! He seems to relaxed when he is talking with people and you should have seen him on stage.

Oh, I certainly believe that.

Btw - really big? I guess you just mean tall, seeing as people (normal-heighted people, anyhow) tend to look wider on tv than they really are?
