Putting Obama's Portland Rally in Perspective

According to MSNBC, Obama's rally in Oregon yesterday attended by 75,000 supporters was not the largest US political rally ever. That honor goes an 80,000 person rally held by Kerry/Edwards back in the 2004 campaign.

The big difference? The Kerry/Edwards rally was one week before the general election. Yesterday's Obama rally was 169 days before the general election.

It's not going out on a limb to say that Democratic rallies this year are only going to get bigger — a LOT bigger.
