Chicago Rapper "Common" Rocks Hyde Park

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

It is a mellow fall night out here at on the Midway.
I've always been lousy at crowd estimates but it looks like 15-20 thousand have jammed this stretch between Dorchester and Woodlawn.
Chicago rapper Common wound them up.
The presidential motorcade is just pulling up.
This get-out-the-vote rally is like deja vu all over again.
The music, the crowd, and the man---Barack Obama---are all the same.
The situation is decidedly not.
What he won so decisively in 2008 is at risk tonight. His own Senate seat is in play.
Even if he closes the deal here, the question no one can answer is whether nationally this is a wave election in the GOP's favor.
