Barack Obama Draws Largest Campaign Trail Crowd in Portland, Oregon

19 May

Barack Obama in Portland, Oregon on Sunday, May 18thThe photo to the left (by Chris Carlson/Associated Press) requires little explanation. This is the crowd of 75,000 supporters & curious observers, I am sure, that Barack Obama drew in Portland, Oregon on yesterday.

This overwhelmingly white audience of onlookers proves one critical point that I hope corporate owned media, politicos, and other naysayers will finally accept…Barack Obama is undoubtedly an electable candidate; and, he pulls white voters for the same reasons he pulls the majority of Black voters…he’s intelligent, experienced in unique and substantive ways to lead the nation, appears genuine in his intentions, and inspires real hope that America can be better and do better at home and abroad. This crowd like me and millions of other Obama supporters are willing to take a chance on a candidate who sees and feels what we see and feel in our hearts and minds, irrespective of race or ethnicity, that a more beautiful, more just, more responsible, more inclusive, and more united America is possible and neccessary.

    That’s completely insane. Who ever heard of that many people turning out for a political rally? Can you imagine the turnout this guy’s going to get once he’s officially the nominee?

    Thanks for your comments. I’m feeling good about Barack’s chances of winning. How about you, considering the DNC meetings today on the outcomes of the Michigan and Florida delegations?
