This kinda slipped under the radar this weekend, but Obama had an estimated 75,000 folks show up at a rally on Sunday in Oregon. Wow.

[Eric: I wanted to jump on here instead of make another post. This is the video from that rally. Simply amazing thing to see. Hopefully a harbinger.]

and another version including Obama’s “wow” comment:

  • Lots of white folks in the crowd there. I bet a lot of ’em are hard-working, too.

  • Yes, and I can’t imagine many are racists. Hmmm. “Hard working”, “blue collar” doesn’t mean racist afterall! Novel idea!

    Seriously would be nice to understand the difference in demographic. Oregon and Kentucky are about the same race-wise:

    Oregon – 90.5% white
    Kentucky – 90.2% white

    What’s the difference?

    High School graduates

    Oregon – 85%
    Kentucky – 74%

    College degree

    Oregon – 25%
    Kentucky – 17%

    Poverty

    Oregon – 12.9%
    Kentucky – 16.3%
