Barack in Charleston

It was amazing to hear Senator Obama's remarks in person this morning. We arrived early to volunteer, but they had more than enough, so we ended up near the front of the line and got great seats in the auditorium.

After a rousing introduction from Senator Jay Rockefeller, Barack stood in almost the same exact spot where JFK opened his 1960 campaign in the WV primary, and delivered his 3rd major speech in 3 days.  

He rightfully highlighted the high costs of war that the continued occupation of Iraq is costing our nation, which have been ignored for far too long.

I will post some photos soon, but here is a video of his remarks.
