    Actually, that was in Denver in front of the State Capitol.

    CSU is in Fort Collins.

    So, two huge rallies in CO for Obama today.

    A rally I went to back in FEBRUARY had 20,000 people attend it (where the Rams play in Saint Louis). The thing just keeps growing!

    So 2 rallies in 1 day, an estimated 150,000 people total. For what its worth, that's about 3% of the states population (based on 2007 estimates). :cool:

    Obama can not even stop here without having an arena because there is just to many people trying to go. Back during the primaries he filled out a stadium here in downtown and there was still something like 2,000 people who could not get in.

    I wonder if he's going to win. I hear the race is tight. McCain has him right where he wants him you know. If you listen to the media, it's still a horse race. Then there's always the Bradley Effect. I don't know guys, that Sarah Palin's pretty popular you betcha don'tchaknow you betcha hey howdy hi doodly.

    One of the questions that I'm still waiting is for is for somebody to ask him if he can't even control a group of people on his side, on his payroll, how is he going to act as a bi-partisan uniter in Washington.

    Did you ask him how higher taxes on small businesses would stimulate the economy?

    Did you ask mccain why he thinks taxing big corporations less is actually going to create jobs? It doesnt. Jobs are still outsourced and more money for the company

    WHOOOPEE!

    With the Democrats looking at 60 seats in the Senate and a solid House majority, he doesn't need to be a bi-partisan uniter. There is no evidence in his voting record at all of any bi-partisan inkling. Instead, expect him to roll full-steam over any dissension with the most liberal agenda the country has ever seen, even in comparison to FDR and Jimmy Carter.

    I'm sorry, I was hoping somebody would ask that question to McCain, seeing how Obama has run one of the best campaigns in recent memory.

    You think that's crazy? I was in Berlin when he was. Germany isn't even in the US and the whole centre of town was closed to traffic.

    tongue-in-cheek moment:

    “I ask you to believe in your selves, in each other and the future. Together we can’t fail,” he said interrupted several times by chants of “Yes, We Can.”

    Almost as good as McCain in Pennsylvania (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=VoprZ0KKhjE)

    One thing about Obama, is that he creates excitement. :)

    Funny picture.

    Likewise.

    Yes, I did a good setup for you. :)

    Of course, if you go to any large gathering of folks, you can see the same. Here in Japan, they used to focus on a Prime Minister that would tend to doze off during long speeches. Funny to watch him try to not nod off, but in the end the Z-monster would usually win. :D

    Just because things like "raise taxes on small businesses" and "no evidence in his voting record..." have been repeated thousands of times by McCain doesn't mean they're true.
