    Me too! I was cheering for the rally as loud as hubby was cheering for the Steelers today! Funny – it gave me hope again. I loved the analogy about the car in the ditch. What a rough two years its been – but hopefully we are really on the upswing this time!

    It was an impressive rally even if 35,000 people seems like a generous estimate.

    According to the Dispatch, this was not only Obama’s largest rally since his inauguration two years ago, but it was also the first time since then that he and Michelle have appeared together at a rally.

    There weren’t 35,000 people there. Maybe 20,000. Fun event though. I got to about 40 feet of him.

    I’m curious about the claims here that “it wasn’t a 35K crowd”. How do you know? I have followed the process of estimating crowds before (for ComFest) and I know that when the crowd is this big, personal estimates based on the number of people you can see from where you are standing have very low accuracy.

    more importantly, who cares!
