Denver, Colorado: Crowd Of Over 100,000 Listen To Obama

 Senator Obama chanted “si se puede,” or “yes we can,” in Spanish along with an outdoor crowd in Denver estimated at more than 100,000. Denver police Chief Gerry Whitman estimated the crowd at more than 100,000, which campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said was Obama’s largest U.S. turnout. A McCain speech two days ago in Denver drew 3,000 supporters.

 Obama has a 12 percentage-point lead over McCain among likely voters in Colorado, according to a Rocky Mountain News/CBS4 News poll. The state hasn’t picked a Democrat for president since 1992. With nine days to go until the Nov. 4 election and leading in most national polls, Obama today continued to hammer his central message that a McCain presidency would mean four more years of the “failed” economic policies of President G.W. Bush. In recent days, Obama has poked fun at McCain’s efforts to distance himself from the Republican president.

“Senator McCain said that actually he and President Bush ‘share a common philosophy,’ ” Obama said. “That’s right, Colorado. I guess that was John McCain finally giving us a little straight talk, owning up to the fact that he and George Bush actually have a whole lot in common.”

 McCain said on NBC that he has found common ground with Bush, 62, on other issues, such as the need for the $700 billion financial rescue plan.

 Obama is scheduled to hold a second rally in Colorado today, in Fort Collins, before heading back to his home in Chicago for the night.

 Obama will spend Monday in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

  1. Obama will be in southeastern PA on Tuesday. He will be at Weidner University in Chester, PA which is about a one hour drive from me. I told my daughter that she should take a sick day and go see Barack Obama. She has been volunteering and she always works on GOTV even though she has a 2 year old and another on the way at Christmas.
