    Every year they have a massive Fourth of July celebration with bands and fireworks under the arch. It is a massive deal for all of St. Louis.

    For these celebrations, they put the stage in exactly the same place as it appears in the photos. I've been under there many times, and I can honestly say I've never seen anywhere near that many people in that place. It is larger by nearly an order of magnitude than what I've seen at any of the Celebrations of the Fourth of July.

    Whatever you think of Obama, it is an amazing turnout for an event in St. Louis. It is genuinely unprecedented.

    Did Obama change his mind about the Greek columns and ordered some sort of arch structure instead? Looks kinda like a semi-O. O for Obama?

    It does kind of resemble the campaign logo.

    This is amazing though.

    I guess people are actually interested in the candidates' policies.

    Didn't Jesse Jackson and friends pull close to 500,000 at the million man march?

    Who cares

    No that's just the huge Halo glowing over THE ONE's head. ;)

    Seriously Rallyies are overreated. Obama paccked TC and Clinton's turnout at hofeinz wasn't even half full. And look how that turned. I would concede this election all but sewed up. I can't see Obama losing this election unless some dark secret comes out in the last week, like Barack Obama is really Queen Latifah. Even then MSNBC would spin it calling McCain a sexist.

    Something to think about....

    The building in the background is the Old Courthouse.

    About 150 years ago, it is there that Dred Scott went looking for his freedom.

    Today, in the foreground, someone of an African American descent is running for presidency.

    Except Obama is not of African American decent. He's the product of a Kenyan and a white american

    Which makes him even more of an "African American".

    Thanks for making it even more symbolic.

    The majority of the electorate, on Election Day, when they vote for Obama and don't vote for McPalin.

    but that's very different than being of African American descent

    Obama's family on either side never went through any of the history that African Americans did. He does not share the same descent with them

    Not really

    I just get a chuckle out of people who think that big crowds matter. Britney Spears pulls big crowds
