Thanks for posting this fine photo. I attended this exciting rally and can vouch that those letters "OHIO 4 OBAMA" were not electronic additions to your photo (as it might appear) but were real, large, foam board cutouts. I only saw them from behind,but they look fanastic from this view!

Also attended last night....couldn't believe the patience of the thousands who waited nearly 3 hours or more to get into the stadium....unlike the McCain campaigns, you do not hear sensible minded people yelling things like "terrorist" or "kill him" at these rallys!!

Side note...the selling of T-Shirts and campaign buttons was way over board (free market enterprising??)....yet there was no pressure to buy any campaign related items.

Overall, good event and very motivating...

WHY WOULD YOU THINK SOMEONE WOULD PRESSURE YOU
TO BUY CAMPAIGN STUFF?
I'M GLAD YOU HAD A GOODTIME, OBAMA IS THE MAN,
AND HE WILL BE A GREAT PRESIDENT!

Praying he is not our next president

TELL US WHY LIZ, DON'T LEAVE US HANGING, WHAT IS
IT, YOU DON'T LIKE SMART PEOPLE OR WHAT!
THE MAN HAS RUN THE BETTER CAMPAIGN, HE IS A
WINNER, NOT A WHINER!
MCCAIN HAS MEMORY PROBLEMS, HE SHOULD NOT BE
RUNNING TO RUN OUR COUNTRY!
AND PALIN IS AS SLOW AS MOLASSES!
LIZ WE NEED YOUR VOTE AND YOUR PRAYERS!
OBAMA IN A LANDSLIDE!
