★★★ 73,000 + People ★★★


Yes, 73,000 + people have filled The Denver Mile HIgh Stadium to bear witness to history in the making. Barack Obama will accept the nomination for President of the Untied States of America!
He does so in a stadium packed with individuals who want change! Not only want change, demand change!
He does so on the 45th anniversary of the "I Have a Dream" speech by Martin Luther King.
He does so on the heels of 8 years of failed leadership, failed potential and mis-use of power.
He does so as millions of Americans have lost their insurance, their homes, their jobs, their hope.
He does so in a stadium with more than 73,000 unified Democrats rallying for a cause.
He does so in a stadium that has welcomed former Republicans to voice their anger with their party.
He does this tonight.
With history in the making, the power of the people on his side, and a demeanor befitting a born leader,
Barack Obama will be center stage tonight and on election evening as we elect the next President of our country!
He does this to define and make real the promise of democracy.

I have hope!

Just as I expected, you have expressed my thoughts so eloquently!

I was around in the 60s. I vaguely remember JFK's speeches, I remember Bobby's demise and MLK's inspiration.

This great American inspires me - he must, must, must be our next President! I feel pride, enthusiasm and yes, hope again!

Yes we can!!! He defined our feelings, our struggles and what we and a strong government can do to heal this great country. Barack brought it to the GOP, how their lies and incompetency, their greedy and mean spirited politics hurt so many. We must elect Barack Obama. This man knows what needs to be done. Let's roll up our sleeves and get to work.
I have hope too!
