Must Have "Jazz for Barack Obama" Button Based on "Blue Train"

If you are voting for the Barack Obama / Joe Biden ticket in the coming weeks, then be sure to snag one of these awesome "Jazz for Barack Obama" buttons from Democratic Stuff based on John Coltrane's "Blue Train" cover  -- or find me on one of my upcoming gigs and ask for one -- I've got 20 on the way! If you're looking to support the other ticket, you're out of luck: after some digging around, the only real mention of "Jazz for McCain" was someone laughing at the concept. Better luck next time!
