Obama Draws 100,000 in St. Louis

"All I can say is, wow," said Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, as he took the stage at a massive rally in St. Louis on Saturday, in front of over 100,000 people.

"George Bush and John McCain are out of ideas," said Obama. "They are out of touch. And if you stand with me in 17 days, they'll be out of time."

"So Senator McCain can keep trying to attack me and distract you – but it’s not going to work. You will not be hoodwinked. You will not be bamboozled. Not this time – not now. Because while my opponent thinks this campaign is all about me – the truth is, this campaign is about you. Your jobs. Your health care. Your retirement. Your children’s future. That’s what this election is about. That’s what I’m fighting for. Because I can take two more weeks of these attacks from John McCain, but the American people can’t take four more years of the same failed policies and the same divided politics. That’s why I’m running for President."

Let's see a McCain-Palin hate-fest draw that many people.
