My friend and colleague on the Obama campaign, Keith, recently posted on CL looking for a date for the inauguration and found a woman he is really nuts about. I too am looking for a date to accompany me to DC in January to be part of history. This will be more fun than you can imagine. You’ll have the opportunity to attend the swearing in as well as go to all of the balls. I’ll even buy your new dress for you. I too am early 50s, widowed several years ago, and generally considered quite easy on the eyes. If this sounds like fun, email me a photo and tell me about yourself.
