Oprah in SC


Good friends Yogin, Leonardo and Dogwood were "tailgaiting" this morning at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia (that's the football stadium, for all you Yankees :)), in anticipation of the rally to be held there for Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama, and Oprah Winfrey. [And Leonardo (aka Mattheus) managed to get interviewed by WOLO too ...]

A text message from Leonardo from the rally itself said that the estimated turnout was about 30,000. And Dogwood sent this photo.

Looks like a football game to me! I'm sure they'll have more on their blogs soon.

The AP story.

Offially over 36,000. I'm still waiting for what the press reports.

It was a good size crowd that filled roughly half the stadium.

Odd that Ms Winfrey doesn't get the message -- long since amply communicated by the experience of other politicians who have been enthusiastically championed by Barbar Streisand et al. -- that celebrity endorsements rub the electorate the wrong way. Voters are perhaps not quite so dumb as they are widely assumed to be, eh.

(Barbra, that is: that wasn't intended to be an editorial comment!)
