Obama in Golden State as Fans Camp Out For Golden Tickets

President Obama is on his first presidential trip to the Golden State today, where he held a town hall meeting. Everyday Californians talked about their lost jobs and financial anxiety. The trip is reminiscent of the campaign trail, as at least one supporter shouted "I love you Barack!" But this time Obama isn't trying to win votes. He wants support for his complex mutibillion dollar budget and pricey plan to fix the economy.

After his events today, the President will hop over to Jay Leno's guest chair. He will be the first sitting president to appear on the show, and you better believe Americans want to witness that history. Last night, people camped out with sleeping bags and blankets, hoping to be among the lucky few to get tickets to the Late Show.

"Fans" is precisely right...

I think many people will take any chance they can to see the president - whether he's appearing on Leno or at a high school. The point is to see him: the more relaxed and informal the setting is, the more likely it's going to be a little slice of history and a fun experience.

He's coming to speak at my old high school today; in about two hours to be exact. So jealous.. sigh. The kids had all the fun this year haha. :)

Ha! That was my first thought. I'm a little more particular with what I call history, I guess.
