Enormous Obama Rally in Portland

Posted by libhom Monday, May 19, 2008

Hat tip to From the Left for Pointing This One Out.

Barack Obama drew the largest crowd of his campaign so far on Sunday, addressing an estimated 75,000 people who had gathered here on the banks of the Willamette River, in Portland, OR.

Obama seemed stunned by the enormous size of the crowd of supporters.

“Wow! Wow! Wow!” were his first words as he surveyed the multitude, which included people in kayaks and small pleasure craft on the river on an unseasonably hot day in Oregon. It is “fair to say this is the most spectacular setting for the most spectacular crowd” of his campaign, he told the audience. His wife, Michelle Obama and their two adorable daughters joined him on the stage at the event.

Photos from the rally make me want to say "Wow! Wow! Wow!" This kind of enthusiasm will give Obama a kind of mandate no president has had in my lifetime.

Check out the local (KOIN) news coverage on video.

  1. Saw some of these scenes on TV. He is going to Tampa this week and my grand daughter is so excited! Course he won't get the crowds there like he did in Colorado but as enthused as my grand daughter is, she will be like at least a thousand herself!

  5. I know, isn't that COOL?

    Also, I was reading an article about Obama's fund raising, and how it's all been done by a ton of small internet donations, rather than at fund-raising dinners for 'big money', I think they said $55 million, which is a lot of money and people, when you consider that an individual can only give $2300. Most of it has trickled in in $20's and $50's..
    This has been a ground-breaking grassroots campaign, and that makes me happy.
