Barack Obama in St. Louis

February 4, 2008 | By | Reply More

I attended Barack Obama’s speech in St. Louis on Saturday night.  I was among a numerous other people attending — the press reported that about 20,000 people were present. To get into the arena, those attending had to follow the line for several blocks, leading up to the door.  We walked past about a dozen sign-waving Ron Paul supporters on the way in. 

Political rallies are often of high energy and this was no exception.  Obama appeared at 9:00 pm, as promised, and delivered a spirited one-hour speech.  He is undoubtedly a talented orator.  He is charismatic in a thoughtful way.  In case you’re interested in his positions on the issues, here is his website.

I tried to take some photos at the gathering, but I was just too far away.   Luckily, a friend sent me an email with some photos his wife took.  I thought that these were terrific photos, well worth sharing.  She gave me permission to use these photos here.    Without further ado, here are three photos from Barack Obama’s February 2, 2008 speech in St. Louis, Missouri:
