I attended the rally in Philadelphia, and let me just say, it was a great experience. What happened after the rally was even more spectacular. A spontaneous march from 5th and Market to City Hall. That's about 7 to 8 blocks of chanting "Yes We Can" and "Obama" from a very diverse group of people, who hadn't planned on marching and who weren't even asked to march , it just happened. This type of enthusiasm can not be bought or manufactured, it can only be inspired. I wanted people to experience this night, so I have compiled as many videos as I could fine on Youtube. The people who captured some of these moments did a great job. Enjoy :-)

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.
