Is it worth risking seeing the ex's friends to meet Obama?

    A guy canvassing for a delegate here just came to the door. The canvasser works for HRC in DC regularly, and he spotted my HRC sticker on my Prius (yeah, I know GLBT yuppie mea culpa).

    He told me unsolicited that he can get me in to meet Obama on Tuesday when he is in town campaigning for Deeds for Governor. That would entail I do some volunteering though (either phone banking or passing out HRC shirts).

    The problem is: My ex works in politics and cheated on me and subsequently left me for someone else in politics. The "other man" was also sleeping with a Congressman. Needless-to-say, the whole thing was a big political mess that blew up for a while (http://politicalincubus.com/2009/07/14/a-few-thoughts-on-the-vayd-scandal/). I felt incredibly betrayed by a lot of the people in the political world, because they knew about this affair going on in Richmond during last session (while I remained in Norfolk).

    Is it worth facing a bunch of people where things may be tense in order to meet Obama?

    Please try to avoid Republican vs. Democrat. I just want to know if and how to deal with these people for a chance to meet the President.

    lol, we'd go. What the hell those people mean nothing to you now, and the guy owes you something, like a path to the Prez!

    You've our Canadian permission to take full and unmitigated advantage and pleasure of and from the situation!

    PS when you meet the Prez, avoid french kissing. Not good for the kids.

    I of course want to go, but I am wary of spending time with all those people from politics that I detest or think that I was the bad guy (which considering I wasn't even around when the affair started I don't see how, plus the ex stole and did a bunch of other horrible things... but I digress).

    Hmmm...good points and yikes for effect! lol.

    Maybe they could all do with a medicinal dose of your explanations of what really happened (save this part for after meeting the Prez) then let them politely and eloquently have it! Right in the kisser!

    Good idea.

    If I can muster the courage to go, I'll definitely let them know the truth.

    It's just the hurdle of going and making it through until meeting Obama.

    Also the guy canvassing is here for one delegate while another girl is down here with him aiding a different delegate... who's legislative assistant happens to be my old roommate and a close friend of my ex.

    It's a big mess.

    You'd get to meet the President.

    The President of the United States.

    I'd have went to meet Bush, Clinton, Bush, any of them.

    It's the President....icon_eek.gif

    ha grated people know I don't exactly agree with O on a lot of things (mind I am democrat) and considering the last time I met him was when I got pulled over so Senator O and his Motorcade could by. He waved and I was extra pissed (sorry I supported Hillary) and tossed him the finger lol... but anyway point being is that he is the President of the United States... enough said. Screw the man.. men come and come go as in most things in our world... however the its the office that remains. Id go for the mere fact that he is the president if nothing else.
