Fade to Blue

30,000 KerryEdwardsiacs gathered in KC on Saturday to cheer on our next Prez and Veep. Thirty. Thousand. People!

Crowd Pleasers Posted by Hello

This was one of the largest rallies of this campaign and pictures simply will not do it justice.

Kerry and Edwards are drawing October crowds in August. This is great! What could be better than a blue MO? A blue Arizona.
Kerry arrived at the Flagstaff event about 10:40 p.m., stopping to give high-fives to people crowded against the barricades.

The Arizona crowd was 10,000 strong.
Kerry was riding the 16-car train that he boarded in St. Louis. The train includes a car used by former President Harry Truman during his 1948 whistle-stop campaign for the presidency. Kerry was originally supposed to slow down to wave at supporters in Winslow, but with a huge crowd at the train station, he decided to make a brief stop. Kerry said he saw a sign that read, “Give us eight minutes and we'll give you eight years.”

“Just for an insurance policy, I gave them 15 or 20,” he said.

Blonde nod to the all-seeing Atrios.
