For retired Navy Nurse Anne Rawley, the day was pretty special.
She got a backstage meeting with the President.
“I didn`t think I was going to get to sleep last night and then I was afraid I wouldn`t wake up in time this morning,” said Rawley.
As the President finished and the crowd began to thin, they left with a determination to keep him in the White House for another term.
