Check out this story on Obama’s rally in Phoenix. Unreal. 13 thousand supporters turned up to listen to Obama speak while standing in front of Governor Napalitano and Caroline Kennedy.
I am very sad that I was not able to attend this rally. I’m currently traveling in Europe so I was curious from afar to see how this rally would turn out. I just have to say how proud I am of my home state. I was born and raised in Arizona and have lived through and lamented the days of former Governor Evan Mecham who canceled the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. Considering the history of Arizona and it’s staunch conservatism, this Obama rally is very significant. No other political figure in America would be able to fill this arena and the fact that it’s an African American who has done so fills me with joy.
Let’s hope for good things on Tuesday.
