Obama's coming to the Fort!



Presidental candidate Barack Obama will be making a campaign stop @ the Oval on CSU campus this Sunday @ 3:30, gates will open at 1:30.

He is going to be the first and only candidate to make a stop here in Fort Collins. I hope that every member of the BBD, whether they support him or not, will try to make their way to the event.

Pretty cool; I'd certainly go if I were there. The closest he's coming to me is Indy (~1 hour drive, and I don't drive).

Life should be more like the commercials for top-shelf spirits.

I hear that there will be only one way into the oval. And Laurel will be closed for sure.

I won't be able to make it, however. It sucks, but I gotta fly tomorrow

You did not miss much. It was alot the same with only one really quality part when he talked about personal responsibility for ones actions. Other than that it was alot of the same rhetoric as usual. He also attacked McCain a bunch after saying that we need to move beyond that very thing.

Also, the crowd was very "cult of personality"

It was pretty poorly organized. They only expected 6,000 people and over 50,000 showed up. The line went all the way from the Oval, wrapped around the Morgan Library, past Hawthorne, down Plum Street, wrapped around Moby Arena, down Shields street, up Lake street all the way to College Street. I have a map with a picture of the long line which I'll post tomorrow.

Once he started talking, security just let everyone in. Everyone broke from the line and made a mad dash to the Oval. Once we got there the only spoke in a corner of the Oval facing away from the center of the Oval, and only spoke for 30 minutes.

Only got to see the back of his head, but it was so worth it.

When it was over I saw people climbing cop cars and barricades to get out.

Ya, it was a long day of standing in line for no results. The speech was exactly like all the others, even the personal accountability part. I wish I had been able to get in but I guess just seeing all those people who were there and likely to vote for him made it worth the while.
