Obama came to Albuquerque to do a town hall meeting yesterday and on a whim I wrote an email asking if a podcaster would be considered press. They didn't even blink. They just issued me a press pass and I had all the same access as any of the 'big media'. The town hall was at a high school and the Obama camp was even cool enough to give the kids from the school paper a spot on the media riser in between CNN and Fox News.
Score one for EVERYBODY! Thanks, misspeter, for sharing the story on the Yahoo! Podcasters mailing list so I could share it here.
