Since November 4th I’ve been feeling a mixture of relief and post-election blues — not just for the way that people voted, but for the whole process finally being over. This election season has been so long and bizarre that I had to see it through the filter of satire, with daily doses of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, and more recently the Saturday Night Live sketches which essentially wrote themselves.
As part of CAAM’s Election Initiative for 2008, I will be blogging about my personal experiences with civic engagement in the Asian American community during this past election. Here are some short stories, responses, ephemera collected from the road during the brief time I signed up with the Barack Obama presidential campaign.
Flashing Lights, the latest installment of CAAM’s Social Club, was great fun. Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate APA Heritage Month with us! Check out the photos from the CAAM Interactive photo booth. To see all the pix go to our Photo Gallery on the CAAM Channel.
