I am currently sitting next to Charles Barkley at the Atlanta Airport, who got on the phone as soon as he sat down because he left his wallet at the house. He's on his way to Denver, too, and chatting with a middle-aged African-American couple about how exciting it is as a "young man" to see Obama's candidacy and how incredibly excited they must be to see it โ€” and they agreed. Barkley added that "the economy sucks for the majority of people" and even signed an autograph for another girl's boyfriend. He'll be on CNN later this week, and he's really hard to get a surreptitious picture of because he wears he hat pulled low.
