Yes we can.



I saw Barack Obama speak at the Kohl Center this evening.

Wow.

He spoke to things I find very important. They include:

  • Getting us out of Iraq.
  • Iraq was a distraction from the real work in Afghanistan.
  • Hope is not unobtainable.
  • Having the same cast of characters in Washington won't produce different results.

In terms of the event itself it was amazing. I will probably never in my life see as many people in the Kohl Center as there were tonight. The entire upper deck was (probably illegally) full... every square foot had a person... stairs, hallways, etc.
