At first I thought this was a bit of a hype, but when I saw the thousands of people show up in Wilmington to see the Obamas and the Bidens, I was touched by the faces in the crowd. So long many have felt disenfranchised, and on this day, they felt very connected to P-E BO and his message.

Nice diary, and approp song for this journey.
