50,000 people see Kerry in Portland, OR


It is pretty amazing that Kerry got 50,000 people to come out and listen to him speak in Portland, Oregon this week. Granted, Portland is (I think) a fairly liberal place, but the population is roughly 500,000 people. Considering that Oregon is a potential swing state, I'd say that the numbers at Kerry's event were particularly staggering.
