179. I went to the Dallas Obama rally that filled Reunion Arena to

the rafters in the middle of the day. The conversation and excitement was stretched all the way from the parking garage 3 blocks down. There were herds of people moving towards that arena. I have never in my entire life been part of a huge crowd filled with people of all races and backgrounds all loving one another and loving Barack Obama - and the feeling of hope and change was definately in the air.

I was concerned, though, that I got inside the arena so easily and then within 3 feet of him, with nothing or no one between him and me but air, as he exited the arena floor. He's the biggest thing since Kennedy and I'd feel so much better if they protected him better and didn't leave him open like that.
