Yeah, I wouldn't go to hear her if it was free. How smart can she be with an idiot husband? Yikes!

How do they know if you are not an Obama supporter? If you want to hear what she has to say then go. Maybe she will sway your opinion one way or another.

Points of clarification, since I initiated the question about whether it would be "open" over the weekend, but then did more research today. 1) I called PSEA office and they didn't know! They suggested I call Dem party office. 2) Rather than do that, I went to the Obama website. To register, I had to give my name, email, county, and phone number, and RSVP, and then I got a confirmation/ acknowdgement that I was in. Not a ticket, but just a confirmation. 3) Sadly, due to a late change of plans, I couldn't make it, so I can't say if I would have truely been able to get in, but all indications from the written confirmation was that I might have.
