For some reason our town is being bombarded with politcos out campaigning &/or announcing their democratic nomination for president. While this would be historic, it's a commuter's nightmare, especially if you happen to get stuck in the traffic caused by roads closed off because of secret service & crowds. To top it off, Mr. Obama didn't check the high school graduation ceremony schedules. There were 3 high schools holding their grad ceremonies at the same time in another arena downtown. It was a mess & there were some very irate parents who couldn't get parking or even to their child's graduation because of the foray caused by our historic visitor. We've had the same issues over the years. The Republican convention is hitting town sometime this summer. Another nightmare. The bridge that collapsed last summer is still being rebuilt so that messes things up further. It seems that you would consider the votes you may lose - those of the stuck commuter or the parents who can't make it to their kids graduation.
