We're headlining this show

It was our moment in the sun. Rest assured it won’t be the last.

The presidential campaign came to Delaware County Monday. The GOP ticket, led by Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin, were the headliners before a crowd estimated at anywhere from 5,000 to 15,000 in the courtyard of the Media Courthouse.

You can read all about it, as well as see a video and slideshow of the day here.

It only reinforces something I’ve been saying now for weeks. This is Ground Zero for Campaign ’08. Pennsylvania could be the key to the election. And the key to winning Pennsylvania very likely will be the Philadelphia suburbs.

Buckle your seat belts. We have 42 days to go.

What do you think the over-under is on how long it takes Sen. Barack Obama to follow the trail set by the GOP and marching into Delco?

For the next seven weeks, we are all going to be VIPs. That’s very important people – and voters.

Our vote is going to be coveted by both the McCain and Obama camps.

Enjoy it. But don’t waste it. Know the issues. Get involved. We have a chance to make a difference. Don’t throw it away with a shrug of the shoulders.

Democracy is a terrible thing to waste.
