"Now is the time to close the deal for Barack Obama and close the book on eight years of failed Republican leadership," she told a crowd of thousands.

The two attracted 20,000 to a field outside the Amway Arena in Orlando. Thousands more lined the streets. Orlando city officials estimated a total of 50,000 inside and outside the event.

Please pray for the Obama Family and Barack's Grandma.  She must hang on.  Pray.  And pray for our supporters who are being attacked during this election.  We all must stay together.  We are only strong TOGETHER.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
