Daily Kos on the ground – Oregon Report

I’m Writing from Obama’s Portland, Oregon Rally.

Written during the event today and posted late due to technical difficulties. Damn phone.

In mid-August of 2004, I attended the Portland, Oregon rally held at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. There, an overwhelming crowd of nearly 50,000 people converged to greet and hear the Democratic Party’s Nominee, John Kerry. My early arrival (about 7:30 a.m.) offered me the chance to be up against the barrier and afforded me the chance to shake both Senator Kerry’s and Ms. Heinz-Kerry’s hands (he arrived a little later than 12:30 p.m. as I recall.) Photos viewed later that week, showed the scene to be one that was indeed very impressive in panorama.

THEN –> 2004 Rally in Portland, Oregon for John Kerry.

After actively volunteering for Senator Obama’s campaign since February of 2007, and working the Portland rally at the Coliseum (the one where Governor Richardson endorsed Senator Obama) I’m here again, awaiting the Senator’s arrival, and putting my memory of 2004 into contrast.

After all, this is still the Primary. Right?  Link to complete Daily Kos article
