Motorists on Royalton Road in Strongsville might have glimpsed Kathy Furz on Tuesday as she strolled along Route 82 wearing neck-to-foot Obama campaign signs.
"I've done this my entire life," said Furz, who lives in Strongsville. "I'm getting a lot of support. One guy all but leaped out of his car, though, and said if I didn't leave he'd make me."
A member of the Clinton-Gore advance team for nine years, Furz grew up in a political household and feels strongly President Obama "is for all the people -- not just 53 percent."
Plenty of drivers honked their horns and gave a thumbs-up to Furz as she stood at the I-71 interchange on Election Day.
Plenty of others honked and offered a less friendly gesture. "Obama's worthless," one guy yelled.
It's all good.
"I'm making a statement, yes," said Furz, who started her vigil at 5:30 a.m. and hoped to stay through the evening rush hour. "But I'm also reminding people, 'go and vote.' People fought for this right."
