Barack Obama made history again today after drawing the highest American crowd of this year's presidential campaign. The senator who became the first black man to become a candidate was cheered on by more than 100,000 people in St. Louis, Missouri.
"All I can say is wow," he said as he took the stage in his latest bid to woo voters in the key battleground state. The Illinois Democrat has drawn big crowds all through his contest with John McCain, who Mr Obama now leads by up to 14 points in nationwide polls. In May the 47-year-old attracted about 75,000 to an event in Portland, Oregon before that state's primary election.--MORE--"
Not that I care (I'm voting Nader again), but if the black man has the election stolen from him, it will be the biggest heist in history!!!
