Obama Fever...Set In Motion (Fire!)

Tuesday, February 26, 2008- The Group that Supports Barack Obama Voluntarily (hereon in, referred to as “Obama for Obama”) were preparing for their Wednesday, March 5, celebration. The Obama City celebration was for the U.S. Presidential candidate Barack Obama's "Super Tuesday," March 4, 2008 primary. These are the makers and shakers of the “Obama Fever.” Today the group includes more than 150 residents, business owners, and government officials. Yes, that's a preview of the Obama apparel they were discussing. Wait to you see what they actually produced!

Monday, February 25, 2008- Obama mayor Murikami and I are greeting each other for the second time. I had the privilege to interview him on Tuesday, 2/19/08 about the Obama namesake during our first meeting. Him and I sent letters to Senator Obama and his wife Michelle, respectively.

The city also sent an urushi daruma doll (a good luck charm for determination) and changed the doll's traditional marking from "pass" to "certain victory." That's what I'm talking about. Professing victory, there isn’t anything wrong with claiming what you want. Also, elegant chopsticks were sent to Senator Obama and his wife wishing them the best of luck.

FYI- I was told 80% (or a large number) of Japan's chopsticks are created in Obama. Honto?!?!

Thursday, February 21, 2008- Japan's media covered the interview I had on Tuesday, February 19, 2008 with Obama mayor Toshio Murikami. How cool is this? In fact, numerous Japanese media markets, because of the “In Obama for Obama” YouTube videos I created, interviewed me. Honto! (Honto means Really? in Japanese).
