We are in the plane on our way to spend a day on the trail with Senator Barack Obama. The campaign has promised us unprecedented behind-the-scenes access with the Senator as he gives a speech on Iraq in Fayetteville, North Carolina and then travels to Charlotte for a town-hall event.
In between events Senator Obama will sit down for a one-on-one interview with Anderson.Most viewers are used to seeing candidates in formal settings, hearing soundbites, and reading recaps of highly orchestrated official campaign events. Seeing what actually goes into a day on the trail should be revealing.
We will take you with us as we go backstage and up close with the candidate on the trail. We will be with the Senator before he delivers an important address on the war in Iraq as the 5 year anniversary is upon us.After the event in Fayetteville the six of us traveling for the show will board the Obama press plane and fly with the Obama staff to Charlotte, North Carolina and see first-hand the questions voters have for the candidate.
The day will end with our live show at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte.The day will end with our live show at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte.
We love doing the show from campus locations because we inevitably draw a large crowd of curious, energetic students and young adults. It should be an apt end to a day on the trail with Barack Obama.– Diana Miller, 360° Producer
