Obama appears at RIC

I intended to make it to RIC for Obama's appearance today, but a few factors, including the need to pursue research for a unrelated story for this week, kept me away.

Matt was there and he live-blogged the event. Here are some of his thoughts after it all ended:

<-> Assistant Fire Chief Dillon says that there were 5,000 people inside of RIC and 5,000 people outside of RIC. TEN THOUSAND people came out through the rain and the snow to believe in a greater future for America.  Now, if only each person who came to the rally gets 3 other people to vote, than Obama can pull off an upset in Rhode Island. 

<-> Obama's best comeback to Hillary's recent attacks:

"Real change isn't voting for George Bush's war in Iraq and then telling the American people it was actually a vote for more diplomacy when you start running for president. The title of the bill was `A Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq.' I knew what it was, Lincoln Chafee knew what it was."

<-> Who would have ever thought that 5,000 Democrats would be cheering for Linc Chafee?  All I have to say is... WOW. ....
