Obama Draws Quite a Crowd

Barack Obama was in downtown St. Paul Tuesday night and accepted the nomination for President at the Excel Center. Since I have class Tuesday nights (but only for 1 more week!) I didn't get home until 10pm and was completely unaware of the turnout. Wednesday morning a couple people asked me how my commute went on Tuesday, assuming I was trying to get to my downtown St. Paul condo at the same time as the Obama event.

It turns out there was a line of people almost 2 miles long winding its way from the Excel through downtown waiting to get into the arena.

MPR has a photo essay the documents the whole thing.
