A mass of humanity in St. Louis..
Obama just finish speaking in St. Louis under the Gateway Arch. Here is a picture on part of the crowd.

October 18, 2008
100,000 people

Image

Lt. Samuel Dotson of the St. Louis Police Department placed the crowd count at 100,000 people, according to the campaign.

"All I can say is, 'Wow,'" Obama said just after taking the stage underneath the Gateway Arch.
Politico called Dotson to confirm the crowd figure but has not yet heard back.

If the number is verified, it would be Obama's largest American crowd, second only to the 200,000 people who turned out for his speech in Berlin, Germany, and more than the 80,000 people who attended his Democratic National Convention speech.

That St. Louis venue seemed ripe for that kind of turn-out.

Does that tell you how much people want real change and not the fake McCain stuff?

Elizabeth Dole needs a prayer meeting... more like one for her and not for the good of the county, state, and country. The other people in the party might have been praying for her not to win.

The estimate of the size of the Obama turnout in Missouri has increased to 175,000.

175,000 TURN OUT FOR OBAMA

AND look at this YouTube about John McCain's attitude towards vets:
