Road Blog: Joe Biden, Fired Up in Liberty


After Russell Tucker was laid off from his job at the GM plant in Kansas City this past summer, he was hanging around the house, watching T.V., when he found inspiration:
“It was the middle of July when I got laid off. I was laying around the house when I saw the Democratic Convention on TV, and I recorded, it. I was so taken by Barack Obama’s speech, I watched it twice the next day. I had to find out some way to get involved. I found 31st and Gillham (an Obama volunteer headquarters), and I came up with a little thought -- with John McCain we hope for change, but with Barack Obama, we change for hope. So I changed, I got involved. This is the first election in which I’ve done any volunteering.”
Now this Steel Metal Workers Union member works for the campaign full time, on a volunteer basis. He even traveled out of state last week, to canvas in Kansas. “That was interesting," Russell said. "I think we’re going to win Missouri, and I think maybe Kansas too.”
Joe Biden’s speech resonated with Russell today. “I really like what he said about the programs that he and Obama have planned, that will help me and average Americans, not just a few rich people.”Here’s a clip of Joe fired up, speaking to Russell and 1100 other folks today in Liberty, Missouri:
