Marin and Ahern: "Thelma and Louise"

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

My NBC5 colleague Mary Ann Ahern and I ran into Obama Communications Director Robert Gibbs as we were staking out Michelle Obama at Invesco Field.
"Robert," we said, "talk to us."
"Ah," joked Gibbs (or was he joking?), "it's Thelma and Louise. Which one of you is driving?"
"Both of us," cracked Ahern.
Gibbs, looking relaxed and confident, said Obama will make a real personal connection tonight.
What about criticism that this venue is "Temple Obama"?
Gibbs said it will be one giant class in how the audience can go out an organize for this election.
