I was at the Target Center in Minneapolis today to see Obama. People were lined up around the block and jammed into the skyways to get into the arena. The man is a rock star.
Presidential politics landed with a bang in Minnesota on Saturday, when thousands thronged to the Target Center to see Barack Obama and Mitt Romney was set to greet supporters at a more intimate gathering in Edina.
Obama drew almost 20,000 to the arena for a speech that brought the audience to its feet when he spoke out against lobbyists, promised to spend more on students and said he opposed the Iraq war from the beginning. A couple of parents hoisted small children onto their shoulders for a better view.
