I attended President Obama's kick-off rally in the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio May 5, 2012. Today I attended his final Ohio campaign rally in Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.  I think the crowd size was about the same for the kick-off as for the final rally, but I'll have to read the news to check the figure.

The kick-off rally was full of enthusiastic people, but this one had a much higher energy buzz than I've ever seen before. People are truly "Fired Up! Ready to Go!" - in this case to work very hard tomorrow to continue the efforts to Get Out The Vote.

Here's a view of the arena as it was filling:

If you haven't already voted, make sure you give yourself plenty of time tomorrow. Take your family, friends, colleagues, neighbors, and others with you to the poll. I'll be up late tomorrow night, watching the returns.  

p.s. I posted 33 photos here:

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.
