Here they are! The much anticipated, slightly blurry, sometimes random pictures from Obamapalooza!
"Dinner" and a few drinks at 4pm.
Walking from River North to Grant Park.
High-fiving people on the street.
Got our tickets and headed in...
Made it through checkpoint number 1.
...And promptly got in line. Yes, this was the "line" we formed to shuffle through checkpoints.
The view from the potties. It was about 6:30 or 7pm -- not even half the crowd that gathered.
Thank God for the jumbo screen.
NOT thank God for the tallest ginge in the world standing in front of me.
Obama keeps winning states and we're excited!
A picture I stole from Angie who stole it from Kevin who stole it from Josh. (Right?)
OH MY GOD
Yeah, we were relatively "close" to the stage, but I couldn't see shit since I'm, like, 4 and a half feet tall. Dave took this pic.
More pictures from Dave.
This is how I watched his speech. :-)
Totally love Michelle Obama. Love, love, love.
America. Fuck yeah.
Getting out of the crowd and walking from Grant Park back to my place took a little over an HOUR.
These pictures obviously don't do it justice. The energy downtown was completely indescribable. When it was all said and done, we had been standing around for nearly six hours so my body definitely ached -- my feet were sore, my ankles felt like they were breaking, my back was shot -- and it was SO worth it.
So, so glad we went.
