I just got back a little while ago from Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, where around 1,600 enthusiastic/pumped-up people rallied for the Virginia Democratic ticket (Terry McAuliffe, Ralph Northam, Mark Herring) with President Barack Obama; Senator Mark Warner; Congressmen Jim Moran, Gerry Connolly and Bobby Scott; DPVA Chair Charniele Herring; actress Kerry Washington; and several others. President Obama was greeted like a rock star, of course, but in general I was pleased to see enthusiasm for all the speakers – and candidates – today. It bodes well for Tuesday, but of course we have to finish it off. I’m volunteering at the polls on Tuesday, and encourage everyone to put in at least one more volunteer shift before Election Day is over. The state you save may very well be your own. 🙂
P.S. More photos – and video, as it uploads to YouTube – on the “flip,” and also in the comments section.
P.P.S. I urge everyone to compare and contrast the mainstream, sane, constructive leaders speaking in THIS rally with the extreme, loony-tunes, destructive demagogues and bigots (e.g., Mark Levin, Ron Paul) appearing at Cuccinelli’s rallies in the closing days of this campaign. It’s truly instructive.
A loooong line of people wait to go through security for the rally this afternoon in Arlington with President Obama and the Virginia Democratic ticket.
