I was at the Obama rally in Washington Square Park last night. I just kind of stumbled upon it on my way to dinner!

Very interesting. He's a Democrat, but he's clearly trying to talk a good independent game. Lots of talk of the political process being broken. He got the loudest cheers when he spoke against the war.

Overall, I found him interesting. He certainly can talk the independent talk but I'm not sure yet if he'll really walk the walk.
