Hello, Kansas City, how are you? What I should say Hi, may I help you?'

Missouri Democrats saved the best for last Friday night, giving John Kerry a huge Kansas City send-off on his post-convention trip.

A crowd the Secret Service estimated at 20,000 aides called it the biggest Kerry has seen along the campaign trail in his quest for the presidency filled the parking lots and the Liberty Memorial slope in front of Union Station where Kerry and his running mate, John Edwards, rallied the party faithful.

Kerry, flanked by the two candidates' wives and some of their children, began his talk at about 10:15 p.m. more than two hours after some had arrived calling out: Hello, Kansas City, how are you? What I should say Hi, may I help you?' using the well-known salutation at a well-known barbecue establishment.

2. That was an objective article IMO
The farmers were asking real questions and there was a real exchange of ideas.

3. the biggest?
I thought he got a crowd of 20-25,000 in Grand Rapids, Michigan or someplace else along the route? still excellent crowd in KC and Kerry has beaten Bush crowds almost everywhere.
