The Boston Globe: President Obama paid a quick but rewarding visit to Boston yesterday, rallying supporters at a pair of fund-raisers to energize a Democratic stronghold and bolster his campaign coffers … Obama addressed a crowd of 900 at the Boston Center for the Arts in the South End before dining with big-money benefactors at the Brookline home of advertising executive Jack Connors Jr.

The evening event, which couples paid $35,800 to attend, was expected to raise more than $2 million, part of an aggressive fund-raising drive since Obama formally launched his reelection campaign last month. With its deep reservoir of Democratic donors, Massachusetts will probably play a major role in the party’s fund-raising efforts.

On Tremont Street, where hundreds waited in a cold rain in hopes of a glimpse of the president at the arts center, support for Obama was unconditional…..

…Before Obama spoke, Boston Celtics star Ray Allen likened the Obama campaign to a sports team that needed a focused effort to succeed. “Our colors are red, white, and blue. Our coach is Obama,’’ he said.

…Outside the fund-raiser, the small crowds that huddled under the trees to stay dry were surprised to learn that the president’s motorcade had arrived early, beating them to the spot.

“I’m in the doghouse,’’ said Jeremy Kindall, who brought his two young daughters to see Obama. “We’re going to send him a picture and say ‘Sorry we missed you.’ ’’ Hannah, age 8, however, sounded more than sorry. “Well, I was really, really, really, really excited until we found out we missed him,’’ she said. “Then I was pretty much entirely disappointed.’’ :lol:

a basketball legend (and paul pierce)

From Boston Celtics’ captain Paul Pierce’s blog:

So I wanted to share this picture with you guys.

I got to meet President Obama a few days ago when he was in town to speak in Dorchester. I don’t get star struck that easily, but man … it was pretty cool!

I admire what he’s been able to do so much. I also had a chance to tell him about my charity program – FitClub34. Michelle Obama’s program Let’s Move has the same goals as my program – to increase nutrition for kids … makin’ sure our kids are eating right, exercising and being healthy.

He loved some of the things we’ve been doin’, which made me feel real good. I’m hoping we will get to work together soon.

Thank you Fred and The Only Adult In The Room!
