Thousands of Obama Supporters go to REUNION ARENA in Dallas and more have to be turned away

20 February 2008 at 6:29:25 PM

Wow. I've been watching the DFW local news, and on the 2 channels I have going, they show the lines snaking around Reunion and then the entire thing FULL of people-all kinds of people, all ages, all races. Then, on Fox, they showed Chelsea Clinton up at North Texas with an *intimate* crowd (um... small).

Here's video from local WFAA News.

He said many people had asked him why he had decided to run at such a young age. 

He told fans the reason was because "change can't wait."

"We are going to take away tax breaks from companies that are shipping jobs overseas," he said.

"Middle-class people, working people, we're going to cut their taxes," he added.

And from local Fox, including video

And here's a first person account from Dungeon Diary

When Obama finally did appear the standing ovation lasted for several minutes. The crowd seemed more like they were at a rock concert than a political rally. Enthusiasm was the mood of the day as Obama spoke about his plans for America. Much of his speech was from his standard stump speech, but several points were in direct response to attacks by Hillary Clinton and John McCain. He specifically addressed the criticism that his campaign is big on talk but not ideas. His proposed programs to improve education, health care and stem the outsourcing of US jobs were met with standing cheers. The biggest ovation came when he outlined a plan to provide an education to all Americans, even through college. The costs would be offset by a specified number of hours in public service from the students in exchange for their education. Cheers rung through the arena on that suggestion, and mostly from young people who would be affected by it. That is encouraging. It means that these young American’s are willing to serve their country in exchange for an education and that means they are motivated.
