    Oregon.

    Name me any American politician that has drawn such a crowd anywhere in the country. I can't think of one.

    I seem to recall a candidate from the Socialist Party gather crowds of around 100,000 in Chicago in the early 1900s. I can't recall the name off of the top of my head but will post when I remember.

    BS....

    Unmentioned in national reporting was the fact that Obama was preceded by a rare, 45-minute free concert by actual rock stars The Decemberists. The Portland-based band has drawn rave reviews from Rolling Stone magazine, which gave their 2005 album Picaresque four and a half stars (out of five), and another four and a half stars for 2007's The Crane Wife.

    How many of the people showed up to hear Obama, and how many to hear the band?
