Obama supporters cheer as nomination draws near

Excerpt from the Register-Mail:

Scott also has been a long-time Obama supporter, becoming actively involved in his Senate campaign in 2004. She also had the opportunity to interview the young senator while he was in Galesburg to speak at Knox’s 2005 commencement.

She said Obama spoke about his position as both community servant and civil servant while working for the government.

“He sees the government as an extension of his community service,” she explained. “He is there to help make the government work for his constituents. What I’ve always loved about him is that, when he’s campaigning, it’s all about making government work better … and it’s about how we all work together.”
