Writes Al Elkin:
I thought, "Not so good a day for Ron Paul in Bangor, turnout will be low." Of course, when I arrived, the big "Brick Church", as it is called, was standing room only. Cars were parked for blocks. Even Ron's snow covered security people were smiling, happy and shaking hands. As he spoke, amid the cheers, I was reminded of the story of when Einstein was asked to speak at Princeton, shortly after arriving in America. Few understood the great man, they wished only to hear him speak. Well, another great man spoke this day, and we understood 100%. Afterwards, I shook his hand (I got all choked up). I have never, in 56 years, been so enthusiastic about a candidate, and his message. His daughter commented, "I hear that a lot!" And, people of all ages were gathered around his wife, a most pleasant First Lady.
