Yes, your favorite blogger was at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, Los Angeles - up front with all the other members of the press. Senator Obama was at the top of his game and in Presidential form, delivering one of his most powerful speeches yet with the support of 5,000 Obama volunteers and voters, Hollywood actors and actresses, Ne-Yo, and the Goo-Goo Dolls.
However, what impressed this blogger the most was the diversity of the crowd. Every ethnic group and every subculture was uniquely and equally represented, making it absolutely clear that Barack Obama has the best chance to unite America. As a progresive and an agent of change, Senator Obama made it absolutely clear that he can be the leader that moves us past the gridlock and toward the progress that this country needs.
