Field Trip to Obama’s Health Care Speech in Philadelphia

I posted my initial impressions of Obama’s health care rally in Philadelphia. I have pictures uploaded that I hope capture, to a degree, what it was like to be there in person for this event. When I was getting ready this morning, I heard Norah O’Donnell on MSNBC commenting that it was a bit surreal these rallies were starting up again. I wholeheartedly agree with Norah for once in my life. It is equally hard to believe we be battling this health care bill for the next few weeks at a minimum. It is clear from this event, however, Obama has no intentions of surrendering.

I am sure no one here will be too surprised there were plenty of people in purple on hand at this event. My overall impression was that it was much more staged than even I had anticipated. I posted on this at length on my blog so read the rest here.
