I was floored Sunday when 100,000+ Showed up in the bright autumn sun in Colorado to hear Barack Obama speak about Change
But I was moved to tears this morning when I saw that 9,000 braved the cold and wind and rain to hear Barack Obama this morning speak about Change.
The true face of Hope's Determination
Wearing jeans, white sneakers and an insulated windbreaker, Barack Obama delivered his stump speech this morning in a chilly, steady rain in Chester, Pa.
"A little bit of rain never hurt anybody," Obama said, surveying the soaking, umbrella-covered crowd at Widener University, occasionally rubbing his hands together for warmth and squinting through the raindrops.
The Obama campaign considered moving its event inside, but couldn't find an appropriate venue, an aide said. An estimated 9,000 people turned out.
And he said, Give me Two Terms people, and i'll give you Change
And NO, He did not cut out on the crowd.
McCain faced weather problems too...
Obama took the stage less than an hour after the McCain campaign announced it was postponing a rally at 1:15 p.m. in Quakertown, Pa., about one hour north of Chester, "due to weather."
And in closing, I just wanted to point out a comparison, the McCain rally from tKettering, Ohio.... what was really in the room
