Barack the Rally

6am voted, 6:40am back to my apartment! Woo-hoo! There were already 20 people in line when I arrived, but I was thrilled to get in and get out so fast. Then I went to teach and all my students showed up. Good thing I brought bagels, coffee, and OJ for them!

I spent the afternoon walking all around the rally site hoping to find a place to perch later, since I didn't think I'd get a ticket. The streets are closed, barricades are up, and the police are everywhere. People in the streets are selling buttons and t-shirts. I haven't seen one McCain thing anywhere. It's an Obama city today.

Well, I've come up with a ticket to a rally thanks to a friend who asked to be nameless :)...

So, off I go. Photos and cheering later!
