|Photo I took of Clinton with McMahon in the background|
But then Mike McMahon, possibly Staten Island's most awesome congressman ever, came over to me and took my photos to give to the president to sign later. I felt pretty cool getting a congressman to take a bunch of my stuff to get signed by a president so I could sell it on eBay later. This was the third time I've met McMahon and he's been gracious and friendly every time. His staff was friendly too before and after the event. I really hope he gets reelected and I wish I could vote for him.
I also made the news!

There's Clinton signing my book. I got it signed to my dad as a birthday present. I'm the "supporter, one of the 1,600 people who attended the event" mentioned in the caption! I wonder how they knew I was a supporter and not just some autograph-dealing scumbag.
Here's the photo print that he ignored at first in the understandable interest of expediency, but later signed behind some curtains:
Inspiring! I need to drape a giant American flag on one of my walls so I look patriotic more of the time.
August 2012 update: So far I've sold four of the six photgraphs for an average of about $500 each.
