I had a great time tonight responding to your text messages while I was sitting in the upper deck of Soldier Field watching the AFL-CIO Presidential Forum.
Here are some of the comments people sent in throughout the evening by texting their thoughts to OBAMA (62262) from around the country:
*Randy in Greenville, South Carolina texted, "Barack was crystal clear in his call for fundamental change! he was resolute, a statesman not a showman."
*Cole in Arkansas texted, "Obama's response on Pakistan was great and firmly established him as a confident and able commander in chief to better fight the war on terror."
*Kassie in Eagle, ID texted, "Obama is the only 1 who spoke TO the people instead of at the camera! He stood firm and won't allow them to trip him up with misleading barbs!"
