We almost went to the Obama rally on Monday. As I told my boy, he can tell his grandchildren that he waited in line for three hours to hear Obama speak and then just not mention that we didn’t actually hear him.

It was actually kind of fun to be downtown in the midst of the big crowd. According to one article I read, it took a full hour to walk from one end of the line to the other. Wow. There were around 60000 people there and only the first 20000 made it into the area where Obama was speaking. I wish I could find some pictures online to see what it was like on the inside. Instead, I’ve got some pictures of the line.
