Back to Getting Away
In 2007 my sister Carol invited me to sit at her table at the South Carolina Democratic Party's annual banquet, the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner.
I dutifully put on my funeral/Russian gangster outfit and went.
Here I am with another sister, Mimi, and Senator Biden, a presidential hopeful from Delaware.

We're wearing "Carol" badges because she was running (unopposed) for the position of State Party Chair.
Here's one of Carol and daughter Laura after the banquet:

And a few other unposed presidential candidates, first Barak Obama, at the table next to us, who not only didn't get a chance
to get a bite to eat, but didn't look as though he had lately:

John Edwards, who came in with a truely over-loud drum corps and so deserves one of the few bad photos ever taken of him:
