Obama in Madison

Well, Barack Obama arrived in Madison tonight and the Kohl Center was jammed to the rafters to hear him. (I wonder how many got turned away.) He gave a broad, inspiring speech to an excited audience. And he was blending away … he's been talking about being a hopemonger for a while (and it gets tons of g-hits), but I didn't yet know Obamacan until tonight (see here for details).

Yeah, a shame you couldn't live blog it -- no computers allowed except for the press area. CNN has lots of video up from the speech, mostly the intro, and they're doing a piece on air now from the Kohl Center.

Wikipedia has no article for it. Maybe you should start one.

I hope you found some content among his words. That seems to be a common interpretation of his stump speeches, that the energy is there but little substance.

My apologies for going political. But you brought it up...

Well yeah, Tom, I did bring it up. There's content of course, but I definitely want to hear more.

But Ollock, I'm not going to start doing wikipedia stuff -- I suspect that's more addictive than any drug.

If you don't want to start a wikipedia entry, fine, but it's not very polite to us your readers to give us a link that says "see here for details" and then we click it and there are no details to be found.

Arg! Sorry about that. I put in a REAL link.
