Interesting.  This is commercial quality video making, Syd.

I've been to tons of political rallies and I'm so in the moment I forget to take extensive video or bunch of pictures...LOL.  Dang it!  Story of my life - Thank goodness ;0)

I still like him.  'Course I'm one of those pinko-independent-centrist-progressive-commie-conservative-socialists.

,..and yeah,...hard to get around that human thing, but I think admitting that we really are just another species of animal on this planet would go a long way towards making us more understanding and tolerant of each other.

,...seems the biggest trouble is caused by people thinking they are special or chosen in some way,...above the natural. It just 'aint so.

Pyper, thanks.  I remember wanting to capture the experience of being so hopeful after years of feeling not-so-much, and I felt the only way to do that would be to capture the excitement in the faces of what was a wonderfully-diverse crowd who'd come to see the embodiment of their dreams for change.


Amy, I still like him too.  It may seem like the vid's about him (how he's let down the ever-shrinking middle class down), but it's really about what we hang our hopes on, and how it no longer matters who's got the White House. 


We are, all of us, beautifully-imperfect fools, even those who are Republicans who think they're currently on the winning side when, in fact, they're losing as much as we are (possibly more, since Republican-controlled states are poorer).

A quote from the genius behind Calvin and Hobbes. Nice. What music was this btw?
